Tired of the Multiplexes?

You do not have to watch the latest vampire soap opera or CGI 3-D spectacular for lack of alternatives.  We are very fortunate in Portland to have the NorthWest Film Center (NWFC), Cinema 21, the Hollywood Theater, Clinton Street Theater and a bunch of second- and third-run theaters showing films old, new and almost new.  Plus, many of those last serve beer and pizza.
