approximate schedule:
5pm – doors

7:30 – Cinefamily Bigfoot mixtape!

In the 1970s, Bigfoot went on a pop-culture rampage, capturing the imaginations of millions, spawning an entire sub-genre of monster-in-nature movies and even guest-starring on popular TV shows. While skeptics and hardline scientists continue to deny Bigfoot could be anything more than a myth, others—including respected citizens and nearly every Pacific Northwest Native American tribe, whose oral histories of Bigfoot encounters go back centuries—present compelling cases that the Sasquatch are real. Tonight, we creep through the forest together with a special Cinefamily mixtape unearthing the glories of golden-age Sasquatch cinema and a rare presentation from the “Dr. J” of Bigfoot—Dr. Matthew A. Johnson, who stands 6’9” tall and is a Licensed Clinical Psychologist and author of Positive Parenting with a Plan. In 2000, Dr. Johnson’s family encountered a Bigfoot on the mountain above the Oregon Caves National Monument Park. He’s been researching the Bigfoot phenomena ever since, leading to his eventual habituation with a local Bigfoot family.

Come early to enjoy outdoorsy-themed cocktails like the Roasted Marshmallow and the Scout’s Honor and stay through the night for more music and drinks! Bigfoot? Bigfoot bigfoot bigfoot. Bigfoot!
