On a crisp November evening in 1945, just two months after WWII finally ended, the giddy murmuring of moviegoers floated through a lobby lushly decorated with rose-colored carpet, brown oak walls, and columns tiled in purple. As impressive as these appointments were, they paled next to the lobby’s other ornamentation: congratulatory telegrams from the likes of Bing Crosby, Cary Grant, and Ginger Rogers, nestled alongside flowers from well-wishing movie studios. This was the opening night of The Garland Theater, and its excited guests were about to watch a double feature of It’s a Pleasure and Double Exposure in a stadium-style theater that could seat 1,000 among its powder-blue and Italian-red walls.
Today, the family-friendly theater continues to welcome cinephiles and popcorn bloggers, but it keeps ticket prices down by playing its blockbusters slightly after their initial releases. Since undergoing a total renovation this year at the hands of current owner Katherine Fritchie, The Garland now hosts 540 spacious seats, modern sound, and a state-of-the-art digital projection system. Events such as Totally Tubular Tuesdays, which feature classic movies such as Peewee's Big Adventure or The Matrix, boast even cheaper admission. After the credits roll, moviegoers head to the theater’s cocktail bar with full kitchen, Bon Bon, for a pint of beer or a glass of wine to enjoy while you watch the show.
Though watching a movie in a cinema has its charms, watching the same movie against a backdrop of trees and mountains ignites all the senses. This is what Epic Events aims to do through its outdoor productions and inflatable movie screen rentals. Throughout the Pacific Northwest, the event company sets up sprawling screens in parks, on college campuses, and atop roofs. From there, moviegoers can take in classic and modern films as they stretch out beneath the stars and whisper their favorite lines to cinema-loving squirrels.
