Remember how fun it used to be to blow off an afternoon of work to see a foreign film? Or to attend a showing of that important art or politically charged feature that suburban theaters would never deign to put on one of their 12 screens?
Cinema 21 is where meaningful films can still find a theatre audience. This iconic, perfectly Portland venue remains an independently-owned, locally-operated movie theater.
It frequently holds film festivals, sing-a-long events and other shows. Check online for the latest schedule.
Parking in the area can be a total pain, so if you must drive, drop off your friends at the theatre and drive two blocks north and one block west and park inside the Legacy Good Samaritan Parking Structure at NW 22nd & Kearny.
