Theaters of Portland’s Past Walk, with Greater Portland Landmarks

September 30, 2023 -- 10:00 am - 12:00 pm

The State Theater in PortlandA stroll along a few blocks of Congress Street (with some slight diversions) will be a trip back in time to explore the numerous theaters that dotted Portland’s main street. With historic photos showing what used to be, we’llencounter the end of vaudeville and the proliferation of silent film, as well as the rise and fall of the studio system. Fun surprises include (but are not limited to) roller rinks, 3D movies, a proliferation of pornography and the revitalization of iconic structures. For a city so far removed from Hollywood, there’s a surprising amount of film history to be found here!

Meet at the intersection of Congress St. and Park St. in Portland
