My Own Private Idaho
Thursday, January 21
Doors at 8pm; movie starts at 8:30pm
They live on the streets, do drugs, and sell themselves to men and women. Mike is quiet, gay, and suffers from narcolepsy. Abandoned as a child, he is obsessed with finding his long-lost mother. Scott is the rebellious son of a high-ranking family, who lives this life mostly to embarrass his father. Mike is in love with Scott, who still maintains he is straight and insists that his wild lifestyle on the streets is only temporary. Together, they embark on a quest to find Mike’s mother, traveling from Portland to Idaho to Italy.
…And, to set the mood for the evening, prior to the feature we’ll show excerpts from an episode of the BBC television program Louis Theroux’s Weird Weekends in which Theroux travels to Idaho and meets right-wing patriots who are preparing for a global catastrophe.
