The Hollywood Theatre is a central historical point of the Hollywood District in northeast Portland, Oregon. It was built in 1926 and located across the street from Fred Meyer's first shopping center, currently occupied by Rite Aid.
The Hollywood Theatre was purchased by Film Action Oregon in 1997. Film Action is a nonprofit organization committed to educating emerging filmmakers, supporting working artists and engaging diverse audiences. In November 2011, Regal Cinemas donated newer theater seats to the Hollywood, with the theater then raising over $30,000 to pay for the installation, set for January 2012.
