Join Portland Audubon for a special screening focused on the person that inspired multitudes to honor these “feathered tribes” (John’s affectionate term for birds).

He was one of the most remarkable men in America. A self-taught painter and ornithologist, he pursued a dream that made him famous in his lifetime and left a legacy in art and science that endures to this day. His portrait hangs in the White House and his statue stands over the entrance to the American Museum of Natural History. Yet the story of John James Audubon has never been told on movie screens.”

John James Audubon was born in Haiti in 1785. After his family moved to France, Audubon “emigrated to the fledging United States.” After his general stores “went bankrupt in the Panic of 1819, Audubon made a daring bet: to paint all the bird species of America, in life size. It was a project that would take him decades.”

The Hollywood Theatre is located at 4122 NE Sandy Blvd. Easy access via public transportation is available on TriMet.
