This iconic Northeast theater was already wonderful before its signage and façade got a face lift, but now it’s officially the total package of neon-hued cinematic delight. While they don’t have as many screens as the Laurelhurst, the programming is tastefully selected to filter out the studio garbage that seeps through second-run theaters. The food and drink -- which come from the adjacent pizza shop Atomic Pizza and local breweries -- are above average as well, and the bonus nights of B-Movie Bingo, Kung Fu Theater, and classics on 70mm are invaluable additions that no other PDX theater comes anywhere near close to.
It’s rare that anyone would ever want to loiter in a movie theater long before or after a showing, but Living Room Theaters is an exception to the rule, thanks to its swanky cocktail bar in the lobby. With six screens, an impressive happy hour, food delivered to your seat, and an expertly curated selection of films ranging from the highly accessible to the bafflingly obscure, this is the kind of place you’d walk into after a day in the office downtown and settle in for the night. Hell, the theaters even have moveable ottomans. Ticket prices drop to $5 on Monday and Tuesday, and the 4-6pm happy hour includes discounted drafts and a $5 burger that’s better than anything twice its price.
