‘The Crow’
6:30 p.m. Thursday. Rines Auditorium at Portland Public Library, 5 Monument Square, Portland, free.
Turn the clock back 25 years and catch a screening of the 1994 superhero film “The Crow,” starring the late Brandon Lee as rock star Eric Draven. Draven and his fiancé Shelly are brutally murdered the night before Halloween, which was also the night before they were due to be wed. A year later, a mysterious crow taps on the gravestone on Draven, resurrecting him to avenge his and Shelly’s death. All hell ensues during the stylistic thriller with the equally compelling soundtrack of songs by acts like The Cure, Rage Against the Machine and Nine Inch Nails. “The Crow” has an R rating, so keep that in mind when you extend invites.
