On Saturday, November 17th, 2012, Kick Ass Oregon History is proud to partner with The Hollywood Theater in Portland, Oregon (4122 NE Sandy Boulevard) to present DB Cooper Movie Night! The event begins at 7:30pm.
Are you asking “Who the hell is DB Cooper?” If so, please consult our two podcasts on the subject here and here. In addition, we produced a recent broadcast to examine what has changed in this case on the 41st Anniversary of the United States’ only unsolved skyjacking.
The feature presentation of the evening will be the film The Pursuit of DB Cooper, staring Robert Duvall and Treat Williams – a true-crime cinematic treatment of the subject. In addition, Resident Historian Doug Kenck-Crispin will place the film within the context of the actual crime, and we will have a chance to see some shorter pieces on Mr. Cooper as well.
Joining us for the evening will be none other than Oregon’s own Marla Cooper. Ms. Cooper came into the case last year when she recalled her uncle, L.D. Cooper appearing at the 1971 family Thanksgiving dinner injured and concerned about lost money. L.D. Cooper quickly became a leading suspect in the case, and the FBI has spent some time investigating the connection. Ms. Cooper will spend some time addressing the audience about the current state of the case and some of her reflections on being “DB Cooper’s Niece.” This is a unique opportunity to meet a central character in the DB Cooper case, and a chance to not be missed!
Beer and wine will be available for sale.
An evening to not be missed for any interested in the DB Cooper case, or Oregon History in general. We certainly hope you will join us!
Purchase advance tickets here -the show is only $5!
