UPDATE: Due to the weather, we have rescheduled Suds & Cinema for Tuesday, February, 27 at 7:20pm.
If you’ve got a life preserver handy you may want to bring it to the next Yukon Tavern “Suds & Cinema” for their showing of Orca on Tuesday, February 20th.
This 1977 cult classic was inspired by the blockbuster Jaws but it features an even larger threat in the form of a killer whale. This mammal with murderous instincts is on a mission to avenge the death of his family by the hands of a local fisherman, played by acclaimed actor Richard Harris, along with his sultry side-kick Bo Derek.
When Harris’s character accidently kills the female companion and their child, an orca takes on his village, going after the local fishing economic structure—this whale thinks like a vengeful businessman and doesn’t mess around when going in for the kill. The movie has a good balance of competent filmmaking and camp and is backed up with a musical score from Ennio Maricone who created the iconic soundtrack from “The Good, the Bad and the Ugly.”
Enjoy the movie with a fish and chips basket from the Yukon kitchen and a Guinness from our bar and get your own salty sailor vibe on as you watch man’s marine nemesis go after the fishing industry of a small coastal town. Our bar is a great port to pull into when you want to relax with friends and you may even walk away with the Yukon movie poster for Orca, created by graphic artist Andy Vanderbilt.
Join us at the Yukon Tavern in Southeast Portland on Tuesday, February 20th at 7:20pm for Orca.
