The Mission Theater and Pub is a movie theater and pub located in the northwest Portland, Oregon.[1] Formerly a Swedish church and union hall, the theater was re-opened as a McMenamins establishment in 1987.[2] The theater was known for featuring second-run films, until 2019 when a first-run operation was implemented,[3] and for serving beer, wine, and food.[4][5]


The building was built in 1913 and listed as the Swedish Evangelical Mission Covenant Church on the National Register of Historic Places on October 7, 1982.[6]
