Hollywood Theatre

Thank You! Your rating has been saved.

We've come a long way from silent films. The Hollywood Theatre is still a movie palace, but it's become much more than that. The Theatre has earned a national reputation for its unique combination of award-winning film programming, innovative educational programs (supported in part by the Oscar-winning studio LAIKA), and support and fiscal sponsorship for local filmmakers.

Each year we screen nearly 300 of the best films from all over the world. We also provide educational opportunities for over 500 young people and support multiple Oregon-based, independent film projects. The Theatre has been honored by both the Sundance Institute and the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences for contributions to the film community.

The Hollywood Theatre bears witness to the potential for film to change lives. It's happening here every day, when the lights dim. May it continue for generations to come!


The Hollywood Theatre is a not-for-profit organization whose mission is to entertain, inspire, educate and connect the community through the art of film, while preserving a historic Portland landmark.

A true classic in every sense, the historic Hollywood Theatre is being renovated and even improved as the years reel on. If only the people who were here for the Theatre's Prohibition-era silent film premiere in 1926 could see it now. Their jaws would drop (and so might their beer).

Fabulous new features:

  • New 50-ft. screen in main auditorium
  • New digital surround sound systems
  • Renovated auditoriums with new seats, curtains and paint (and tables upstairs)
  • Refurbished original light fixtures
  • Cleaned and polished Terra Cotta facade
  • New historic paint colors inside and outside
  • Beer & wine for sale!

We are also pursuing more interactive and innovative programming such as our Sound + Vision series, Kung Fu Theater, and our partnership with Filmusik. Stay tuned and sign up for our e-newsletter for info on film screenings, special events and more.
