Back on the Big Screen in Portland, Oregon

The Academy Theatre in Portland is celebrating its first anniversary since restoration, and is showing The Wizard of Oz, Grease, and The Day the Earth Stood Still.

It's great to see a theatre using any excuse to put classics Back on the Big Screen.

However, the screen pictured on their website looks pretty small.

Also, according to the site: "Minors (under 21) must be accompanied by a parent or legal guardian at all times. No minors allowed to shows starting after 8:00 p.m." If enforced, this seems pretty prohibitive. The Day the Earth Stood Still is only showing at 9:45 PM. Is there no way for anyone under 21 to see this classic Back on the Big Screen?
