IMC Feb. feature – watch local

We’re jumping on the shop/eat/drink/play/stay local bandwagon with this month’s feature – “watch local”. This list of films includes those with local ties to writers, directors, actors and film locales in and around Portland. “Video” in the call# means VHS tape – those old giant tapes that your parents used to watch. And remember you can borrow projectors, screens, VCRs and DVD players if you’d like to host your own local film fest.

IMC Nov. feature – Spanish film

Spanish films – we’ve got a lot of them.  This list is a rather random sampling of some notable ones.  For a complete list by title, click here (includes videos with dubbed Spanish language tracks).  Or if you’d prefer to browse the collection in person, come on down to the IMC and ask the circulation desk worker to let you into the media vault.  Most Spanish films are located under call# PN1995.9.S.  If you don’t see your favorite Spanish movie on the list and want to correct this horrible injustice, send an email to Jim Holmes with the film title and a brief annotation.

New movies, projectors and more in the IMC!

We’ve added several new titles over the the course of the summer and replaced a number of VHS tapes with DVDs.  Below is a list of titles acquired after May 15.  Want to watch that movie on the big screen in your own backyard?  Projectors, screens and DVD players are now available for checkout in the IMC!  Pick up your movie and portable movie theater in L32 (library building lower level 1).
