Although it opened its doors way back in 1926, as both a vaudeville house and movie theater no less, the Hollywood Theatre is still going strong today. After its heyday through the mid-20th century, hard times fell on the theater until the 1990s, when the non-profit Film Action Oregon purchased the place and restored it to its peak. Today the HT is renowned for its unique showings & programming, film education seminars for PDX kids, and its original Spanish Colonial Revival architecture.
