Portlandiapalooza at The Rio TheatreThe Rio Theatre is presenting a very special full day binge-watch session of the hit IFC series Portlandia, airing seasons 1 through 3 on the big screen for Portlandiapalooza on April 13th.

There will be birds on things. Pickled popcorn. Artisanal grilled cheese sandwiches. A selection of some of Portland’s very best craft beer courtesy of the fine folks at Copper & Theory. Official Portlandia swag (vinyl! t-shirts! DVDs!) signed by stars Fred Armisen and Carrie Brownstein.

To top is off, series co-creator and star Fred Armisen (Saturday Night Live, Late Night with Seth Meyers) will be joining in for a live Skype Q&A.

    Bing watching Vancouver shot Battlestar Galactica. Been there!

  10. Matthew says:

    My favorite sketch is the chicken farm sketch in the first episode I think. Where they’re at a restaurant and need to see where the chicken they’d be eating is raised before eating it.
