Darkside Cinema: Snubbing A Broken System

Darkside Cinema is Corvallis’ locally owned independent theatre. When the term “independent theatre” gets thrown around, people can get nervous. Visions of barely comprehensible foreign movies, watched by elitist film snobs smoking cigarettes and telling you why your life is meaningless, because you’ve never seen Eraserhead. While these stereotypes float in the ether, the Darkside stands as a testament to what an independent theatre really is. But running a local theatre comes with a lot of risk.
