EOFF will be hosting a night of film at the new “Stage Door Theatre” housed in the back of the historic Liberty Theatre in La Grande. The 50 seat venue is a new and welcomed intimate space for arts and cultural use.

Come join us Wednesday April 25th from 6pm – 9pm for a chance to see the Liberty Theatre, hear about last year’s event successes, screen some great home brewed films, and help support The Eastern Oregon Film Festival in its fourth installment.  For directions to the venue and more information about the films and evenings agenda visit: http://eofilmfest.com/

The Liberty Theatre is located next door to City Hall on Adams Avenue.  The front of the theatre is currently being used by Direct Music and a Eastern Oregon University Bookstore.  The back entrance, hence Back Stage,  is where one would access the 50 seat temporary venue.  This venue will exist while La Grande Main Street and other groups work to generate the capital needed to begin the full restoration of the historic movie house.
