Hollywood Signature Film Series

Pipe Organ Pictures

Silent films presented as they were meant to be experienced - with live organ accompaniment! Every film in this series is complemented by an original score, created and performed live by a professional musician.

The Hollywood organ is dedicated to the memory of Beverly Ruth Nelson and is the result of a partnership between the Hollywood Theatre and the nonprofit Columbia River Theatre Organ Society. The instrument, a uniquely American invention sometimes called a Unit Orchestra, is equipped with many orchestral voices and sound effects, and was designed specifically for use with silent films. It is the only such instrument in a public theatre in Portland.
