Coinciding with the annual Astoria Regatta, Fort George Brewery and the Hollywood Theatre present a special outdoor showing of The Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou, starring Bill Murray. Don your red caps and assemble the crew in the Fort George courtyard, as Team Zissou takes you on an underwater hunt for the mysterious Jaguar Shark. The expedition begins Friday, August 7th at sundown.

As part of an ongoing summer partnership, the Hollywood Theatre and Fort George brewed a small-batch collaborative beer. Christened Vertigo Effect, this Prohibition-era pale ale was first tapped in Portland at the 89th anniversary party for the historic not-for-profit landmark. Now, the Hollywood Theatre is coming back to the coast, with a portable screen in tote and a Wes Anderson classic to show. Look for Vertigo Effect, a very limited draft only release, at the event on Friday and while it lasts.
