Kicking off our tour of vintage Portland is the Laurelhurst Theatre.
A stunning Art Deco movie theatre built in 1923 and restored in 2000, the independently owned Laurelhurst Theatre is home to some of Portland's finest neon and is one of the most popular places to see a movie and grab a pint and a slice of pizza on Portland's east side.
The Laurelhurst is known for its great selection of microbrews and the fact that you can bring your food and drink into the theatre to enjoy while watching your movie.
Two more things you need to know:
All movies are $3.00
March's movie theme is...Sci Fi!
If you can only visit one or two places around town while you're here for the conference, the Laurelhurst is a great place to experience a taste of vintage Portland with a twist.
