The Hollywood Theatre, Portland’s historic nonprofit theatre, is in dire need of a new marquee. The current marquee is crumbling and leaking through the roof, slowly damaging the beautiful façade. To raise the remaining money to replace it, the theatre has kicked off a campaign on the crowd-funding website, Kickstarter.
The new seats have been installed in the main auditorium of the Hollywood Theatre! We’ve also repainted, and replaced the curtains in the theater. These changes are in addition to our new sound system and new screen. A huge thanks to everyone who supported our seat campaign! We never could have accomplished this without you.
We’re extremely excited, and we have some great films and events in the next few days to experience in this auditorium:
In a bold move to increase the comfort level of thousands of patrons in Portland, Oregon, the Hollywood Theatre is rolling out an aggressive, new ergonomic stimulus package called “Creature Comforts”.
The Hollywood Theatre, long recognized as a historic landmark in the centrally located Hollywood neighborhood of Portland, is the recent beneficiary of ergonomic stimulus aid from Regal Cinemas, a national movie theatre chain, in the form of 600 “gently used” seats for its three auditoriums.
The Hollywood Theatre has launched a new logo, website and mission statement! We hope it better represents the new directions we are heading.
New mission statement: 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.
Film Action Oregon (FAO), the nonprofit owner/operator of Portland’s historic Hollywood Theatre and supporter of Oregon’s filmmaking community, is proud to announce an expansion in community partnerships that will boost programming, marketing, concession, membership and special event offerings to patrons of the Theatre.
