Hollywood Theatre at PDX International Airport

In partnership with the Port of Portland, the Hollywood Theatre has opened a first-of-its-kind free 22-seat microcinema at Portland International Airport, showcasing short films by Pacific Northwest filmmakers. The airport microcinema is located after security in the airport's C Concourse.

Are you a filmmaker interested in having your work shown? To be considered, films must be 10 minutes or shorter in length and appropriate for a general audience. Films must be created by a Pacific Northwest artist or feature issues relating to Oregon or the Pacific Northwest. Learn more!

Current Program: Spring 2024

Below, you'll find descriptions of each of the films that are playing in our Airport Microcinema. If you're traveling by plane anytime over the next few months, stop in, take a seat, and enjoy the program!

If you're not taking a plane any time soon, no worries! On Friday, January 12th, you can watch the program in our state-of-the-art Miniplex located at Movie Madness. We'll be screening the entire program on a loop from 6pm - 10pm. Admission is free, so drop in any time!

Coquille Indian Tribe Forest Management by Sustainable Northwest

The Coquille Indian Tribe stewards approximately 10,000 acres of their ancestral forest lands in Coos and northern Curry counties, Oregon, for economic, ecological, and cultural values. Some of the wood used in the Portland Airport's new mass timber roof originated from Coquille Tribal land, specifically wood around some of the skylights in the roof. This is unique because very few construction projects or wood sellers can trace wood back to its source forest.
