Living Room Theaters has expanded hours to allow minors into later shows. Minors will now be allowed into shows beginning at 7 pm or earlier.
The fourth and (supposedly) final chapter in the SHREK series is playing now at Living Room Theaters in XpanD 3D. We’ve adjusted our 21-and-over policy for this run to allow minors all the way up to 7:00 pm shows giving parents expanded hours to bring children into screenings. Also, Living Room uses XpanD 3D, a superior technology to Real 3D (what other theaters around town use) which creates brighter, crisper images on screen. With the holiday weekend approaching, it’s a perfect time to come see SHREK FOREVER AFTER.
Here we are on the opening day of “Shrek Forever After”, and we were able to secure a deal with Paramount to open the film in 3D in downtown. This is only the second major studio film that we’ve opened at Living Room, and we hope that it is a good weekend for us. If you’re going to see Shrek, see it with us!
We’re extending the hours where minors can be admitted into the theaters to 7:00pm. It was only through recent changes in the OLCC (Oregon Liquor Control Commission) rules that we were able to keep the theaters open later to minors. We hope this will be a happy medium allowing younger patrons in for another show or two while still maintaining a safe haven for adults to come and enjoy movies.
As always, we value your feedback about what you think of the movies we’re playing and the environment we’ve created for you to enjoy.
“A mind-bending and mesmerizing thriller that takes its time unlocking one mystery only to uncover another, all to chilling and immensely satisfying effect.”

The Swedish blockbuster THE GIRL WITH THE DRAGON TATTOO begins a run at Living Room starting Friday, May 21. DRAGON TATTOO is based on the international, best-selling novel by Steig Larsson. The first book in a trilogy, it has become something of a sensation selling millions copies worldwide! The film is Europe’s highest grossing film of 2009. Director David Fincher is already working on an American remake.
Forty years ago, Harriet Vanger disappeared from a family gathering on the island owned and inhabited by the powerful Vanger clan. Her body was never found, yet her beloved uncle is convinced it was murder and that the killer is a member of his own tightly knit but dysfunctional family. He employs disgraced financial journalist Mikael Blomkvist (Michael Nyqvist) and the tattooed and troubled but resourceful computer hacker Lisbeth Salander (Noomi Rapace) to investigate. When the pair link Harriet’s disappearance to a number of grotesque murders from almost forty years ago, they begin to unravel a dark and appalling family history. But the Vanger’s are a secretive clan, and Blomkvist and Salander are about to find out just how far they are prepared to go to protect themselves.
The Iranian docudrama, NO ONE KNOWS ABOUT PERSIAN CATS opens Friday, May 14 at Living Room.
NO ONE KNOWS ABOUT PERSIAN CATS is the fifth feature by award-winning
director Bahman Ghobadi (A TIME FOR DRUNKEN HORSES, TURTLES CAN FLY), winner of the Un Certain Regard Jury Prize at the Cannes film festival. Co-written by imprisoned Iranian-American journalist Roxana Saberi, the film is an indictment of cultural repression in Iran’s exciting underground music scene, a powerful cinematic foreshadowing of current protest movements, and a celebration of an entire generation of Iranians striving towards personal and creative freedom.
Shot in secret and featuring extraordinary performances by real underground bands, NO ONE KNOWS ABOUT PERSIAN CATS follows a pair of young musicians, recently released from prison, on a mission to take their rock band to Europe. Forbidden by the authorities to play in Iran, they plan their escape abroad with a fast-talking music promoter. Vowing to play one last show before leaving Tehran, their dangerous mission takes them on a free-wheeling journey through the City’s vibrant and diverse underground scene, home to an estimated 2,000 illegal independent bands.
Living Room Theaters continues its string of 3D blockbusters next week with the release of SHREK FOREVER AFTER in 3D on May 21. SHREK 4 is the final film in the wildly popular series.
After challenging an evil dragon, rescuing a beautiful princess and saving your in—laws’ kingdom, what’s an ogre to do? Well, if you’re Shrek, you suddenly wind up a domesticated family man. Instead of scaring villagers away like he used to, a reluctant Shrek now agrees to autograph pitch forks. What’s happened to this ogre’s roar? Longing for the days when he felt like a “real ogre,” Shrek is duped into signing a pact with the smooth—talking dealmaker, Rumpelstiltskin. Shrek suddenly finds himself in a twisted, alternate version of Far Far Away, where ogres are hunted, Rumpelstiltskin is king and Shrek and Fiona have never met. Now, it’s up to Shrek to undo all he’s done in the hopes of saving his friends, restoring his world and reclaiming his one True Love.
