In partnership with the Port of Portland, the Hollywood Theatre is creating a movie theatre space in the airport’s C Concourse (post-security, for ticketed visitors only). The Hollywood Theatre @PDX will feature short films telling stories specific to Oregon, provide artist residency opportunities inviting collaboration between national/international media artists and local filmmakers, and host special events and visiting guests. Currently slated to open in fall 2016, the Hollywood Theatre @PDX will serve the Portland International Airport’s 16 million annual visitors, who can drop in free of charge to watch films while waiting for their flights.
The Hollywood Theatre @PDX project is made possible through the generous partnership of the Port of Portland, ZGF Architects, Potestio Studio, and Security Signs, as well as the funding support of Travel Oregon, the Fred W. Fields Fund of the Oregon Community Foundation, the Oregon Arts Commission‘s Arts Build Communities program, and the Calligram Foundation.
