Events for the week of Oct. 19–23

Featured Event
Pop Culture Trivia Bowl
Wednesday, Oct. 19
Smith Memorial Student Union 238
6 p.m.
Do you often suspect that you and your friends are the smartest ones in the room? Do you just plain know more than other people? When you suggest playing Trivial Pursuit or one of those Scene It games, do people run screaming from the room while you have a victoriously triumphant smirk upon your face? If you answered yes to any of those questions, then the Portland State STAGE Pop Culture Trivia Bowl is for you! Compete on your lonesome or compete as a team of three to win one of two normal Jeopardy-style rounds, and then compete by yourself in the amazing super lightning bonus round. Each round includes a gift card prize, and food will be provided by PSU STAGE to keep your spirits high and your IQ higher. The categories are film, TV, song lyrics and the history of everything.

They Live Digital Screening
Friday, Oct. 21–Sunday, Oct. 23
5th Ave. Cinema
9:15 p.m. Friday & Saturday, 5:15 p.m. Sunday
Free for Students
Imagine a world in which all the rich people are actually evil alien overlords wearing masks, and that you had to wear a pair of sunglasses to see through their disguise and mass media trickery. Now imagine this was set in the era of feathered hair and that the hero was a Duke Nukem-style blond bad boy. John Carpenter’s most political horror film to date certainly sounds exciting and might actually be a little too on the nose.

This spooky and festive Halloween tradition invites you to get dressed in your best costume and run anything from a half marathon to a kid’s half mile fun run. There will be plenty to help you get into the spirit and a post-race party that’ll raise the dead.

Take the Max out to the Lloyd Center and swing by the Double Tree for an exhibit hall swimming with gently used books, sheet music, comics, pamphlets and basically the start of your book-themed episode of Hoarders. This semi-annual event always seems to sneak up on the local bookworms.
