The Hollywood Theatre at Portland International Airport is a free 17-seat free microcinema showcasing short films by Oregon filmmakers post-security in Concourse C. The program is updated quarterly. To submit your film for consideration, visit The Hollywood Theatre’s Film Freeway festival page.
The mission of the Portland International Airport Art Program is to provide a portal into the dynamic cultural life of our region and provide a showcase for Northwest expression. Exhibits at PDX feature the best of our area’s painters, sculptors, photographers, illustrators and other visual artists… but where would Oregon be without its filmmakers?
Oregon is home to renowned film festivals in Bend, Bandon, McMinnville and Portland. In 2016, Portland welcomed the fifth annual Northwest Animation Fest. Popular television show like Grimm, The Librarians, and Portlandia film here regularly, and the list of feature films created in Oregon is endless!
At PDX, we’re embracing and celebrating film with the Hollywood Theatre at PDX in Concourse C bringing the diverse works of our regional filmmakers to the travelling public.
Films screened at the Hollywood Theatre at PDX are short-format programs on a looping reel. That means passengers can stop, relax to enjoy a short film or two and then move along to catch their flights. The sad news? The theater is located post-security, accessible only to ticketed passengers. The good news? It’s free.
The microcinema serves the Portland International Airport’s 16 million annual visitors. Ticketed passengers can drop in free of charge to watch films while waiting for their flights. The Hollywood Theatre at PDX features wonderful short films by Oregon filmmakers.
