    Tears, tears, tears. They're the worst. They're the best. They were everywhere at our West Coast screening of If I Stay. At Portland's Mission Theater, Warner Bros. Pictures was kind enough to give us an exclusive sneak peek of the new Chloƫ Grace Moretz movie. In it, she plays a character who must choose between life with her boyfriend (played by Jamie Blackley) or never seeing her family again. See why we were crying?

    Well, those tears dried fast because we threw an after-party. Photographer Chantal Anderson hosted the screening and the post-film cocktail bash, which was complete with a s'mores bar, a temporary tattoo station, and lots of tissues. STRFKR capped the night off with a DJ set and brought the good vibes. Wanna see how it all went down? Click on, and be sure to check out If I Stay when the film officially hits theaters on August 22. If you're a New Yorker, you can join us for our second screening party in Manhattan by RSVP'ing here.
