Portland Hollywood Theatre

While visiting Portland recently, Jenny and I came across the famed Hollywood Theatre, a 1926 example of the age when exoticism helped sell a night at the movies. As the theatre's history page indicates, the Hollywood endures because of the loving efforts of preservationists and movie buffs who resist the multiplexation of contemporary cinema. Visiting the Hollywood is an experience that lasts, even when you forget whatever movie they played.
