“Fantastic, unique & thrifty movie-going experience ...”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 July 2014

Went here on the first night of our recent stay in Portland as we were staying nearby ... the theater is beautifully renovated and the price is unbeatable ($8 per person for a movie, enormous slice of freshly prepared pizza (the pepperoni was excellent) and a half pitcher each of a local microbrew).

Highly recommended ... also it seems most other McMenamin Brothers places are interesting as well.

“Great Spot for Movie”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 July 2014 via mobile

Haven't been to this theater in years. It had been older neighborhood theater. Now it is hip neighborhood theater. Cheap movies. Eclectic mix of movies. Helpful staff. They serve beer and pizza, as well as other selections. The popcorn was good too.. We will be back!

“$4 cinema!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 September 2013

We were lucky enough to live round the corner from Laurelhurst Theatre when we lived in Portland. We ended up going there on a weekly basis because of the $4 tickets, the pizza by the slice, and the good beer. We watched so many good films at this theatre but we would suggest changing the films more frequently - we ran out of films to see in the end :-D Overall, we fell in love with this theatre and miss it now (cinema is so expensive in the UK in comparison!)

“One of our highlights in Portland”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 September 2013

Very quaint cinema. For the bargain price of $3, we saw a great film which currently doesn't have a UK release date - good to see something that we can't get at home. Reasonably priced pizza slices and pints to enjoy during the film. It involved a bus journey across the river but it was worth it for the experience. Nice to support the local independents too.
