Located along Portland’s Northeast Sandy Boulevard, in the heart of the business district bearing its name, the Hollywood Theatre has provided family entertainment since it opened as a vaudeville theatre on July 17, 1926.
With 1,500 seats, the Hollywood Theatre is one of the most ornate neighborhood theatres in the Pacific Northwest. Its exterior, with a beautiful Byzantine, rococo tower, resembles something to be found on William Randolph Hearst’s San Simeon estate.
Although still standing, the Hollywood Theatre spent the last 30 years quietly slipping into a state of disrepair, operating as a nearly forgotten discount movie house.
In April of 1997, the Oregon Film & Video Foundation purchased the theatre from ACT III Theatres for the purpose of preservation and gradual renovation. The Hollywood Theatre re-opened in November of 1997 and has once again become a vital part of the Hollywood district in which it’s located.
