Portland still wants Escape to Canada

Escape to Canada will play at the clinton Street Theater until Sept 6.

Escape to Canada holds over in US.

Escape to Canada, the doc that says Canada is cool Harper notwithstanding, has been held over for a week at Portland's Clinton Street Theater following strong houses. Interest in the film which Variety called "altogether winning" is being tested in the US where Canada hasn't always been seen as an intriguing subject. However, Portland's experience suggests otherwise and expect to see Albert Nerenberg's comical Escape to Canada playing in several other American cities.

Portland's weekly the Williamette said: "Escape to Canada which avoids a heavy-handed, Michael Moore-style approach is as enlightening as it is entertaining."
