Portland | City of Cinemas

Since the advent of silent movies, Portland has been a center of film appreciation. In 1923, the Laurelhurst Theater became an art deco destination. Now there are scores of theaters across town offering first-run, art-house and retrospective films. Our piece “Portland's Picturehouses and Production Palaces” gives an overview of theaters and other cinema locales, many of which, keeping with the Portland spirit, serve micro-brewed beers and ales inside. The 1926-built Hollywood Theater found a new life when it was acquired by the Oregon Film & Video Foundation and turned into a landmark.
