"Cave of Forgotten Dreams" the major international film on Chauvet Cave is coming to Portland's Cinema 21! The film is scheduled to open on Friday, May 6.

Nothing is certain yet, but I'm talking to the people at Cinema 21 about having a special showing for OAS members and guests. Stay tuned and we'll announce the event here if it comes together.

Following is some info and the trailer (previously published here)...
