Tim Halbur moved to Portland from Los Angeles about six months ago. As a film buff, he was excited to explore all of the cool independent theaters in the City of Roses; however, he found it was not only difficult to locate them, but even tougher to know what they were playing.
When he lived in California, Halbur regularly used Revival Hub LA, an online calendar that aggregates and tracks “classic, cult, weird and wonderful second-run films.” He reached out to the resource’s creators, and together, they are launching Revival Hub PDX.
Because many theaters don’t show their listings until the week before, it can make it hard to plan. He added, “I’m working with them to get the listings earlier so I can get them in the calendar sometimes before they are even on the theater’s website.”
Halbur also asks that film festival organizers reach out to him to get listed.
