Oregon historic theaters participate in "Coraline" screenings to aid wildlife recovery efforts

It's been 10 years since audiences followed a blue-haired girl to a mysterious Other World in the Oscar(r)-nominated 3D stop-motion fantasy, "Coraline"<https://t.e2ma.net/click/x94ibb/x162xs/diapjl>.  To celebrate the 10th anniversary of the film, Oregon-based animation studio LAIKA<https://t.e2ma.net/click/x94ibb/x162xs/tabpjl>, in partnership with Oregon Film<https://t.e2ma.net/click/x94ibb/x162xs/92bpjl> and Travel Oregon<https://t.e2ma.net/click/x94ibb/x162xs/pvcpjl>, will offer public screenings of the movie in six historic theaters around the state-from Portland's Hollywood Theatre to the Varsity Theatre in Ashland (the film's fantastical setting). In this combined effort to support wildfire recovery, all box office proceeds will benefit the North Umpqua Trail Project and the Lower Deschutes River Post-Fire Restoration Project.

A true #OregonMade <https://t.e2ma.net/click/x94ibb/x162xs/5ndpjl> classic, "Coraline" transported moviegoers to a place they'd never been before: an animated parallel world full of thrilling adventures and startling secrets. Premiering at the Portland International Film Festival in February 2009, "Coraline" was the first stop-motion animated movie to be conceived and photographed in stereoscopic 3D and was nominated for an Academy Award for Outstanding Animated Feature Film.

"We will always have a deep love and affection for 'Coraline' because it paved the way for the rest of our films," says Travis Knight, LAIKA's President & CEO.  "We are thrilled to be part of this anniversary partnership with Oregon Film and Travel Oregon to celebrate our original 3D stop-motion film."
