  • Best damn popcorn- kernels so big you might mistake them for cauliflower. Get some.
  • This historic landmark theatre is well-known for helping educate and support local filmmakers, and it's a beautiful place to watch a film, too.
  • H.P.Lovecraft Film Festival May 3-5,2013;awesome event!!!!!
  • Not only does it inherently have character and ambience as a result of it's historic building, it also rotates fantastic films and offers some great concessions (micro brews, ice-cream, mmm....).
  • I got married in this theatre. It was the best! :)
  • This 1,500-seat Art Deco palace has a marquee that rises above the neighborhood like a beacon. The nonprofit Film Action Oregon runs it, showing independent films and teaching kids to make movies.
  • Enjoy the sake list before or after a movie across the street at Magnolia's Corner! I made it myself :-)
  • Hollywood Theatre is a nonprofit run by good peeps. Please consider donating on your way out :)
  • Beautiful old theater with solid independent films. Grab a glass of wine and enjoy. Wine and beer are all good. Plastic cups and no cup holders.
  • If the downstairs bathroom is packed there's one upstairs that's oftentimes more reasonable.
  • Beats Alamo Drafthouse at original programming. Many are 1 night only, so plan your life accordingly

  • Enjoy the new seats (2012) with cup holders!
  • As seen on Portlandia! A Portland landmark dedicated to promoting and supporting the values and wonders of film.
  • Quintessential quirky Portland. Rave.
  • Don't worry, the lines move quickly. It's worth the wait.
