What's New

CRTOS and the Hollywood Theatre present the classic Buster Keaton film based on a historic feud between two clans. Any resemblance to the Hatfields and the McCoys is intentional!.

Our Hospitality

Saturday Silent Cinema
February 18 at 2pm
Tickets $12 at the door or online

Buster Keaton in "Our Hospitality" (1923, 75 min.)
"Perils of Pauline" Episode #1 featuring Pearl White (1914, 36 min.)
Max Fleischer Out of the Inkwell Cartoon "Perpetual Motion" (1920, 5 min.)

Keaton stars as youthful dreamer Willie McKay, who travels westward on a rickety locomotive to claim his birthright, only to find that his inheritance is a shack. And he learns that the object of his affection (Keaton's real-life wife, Natalie Talmadge) is the daughter of a man with whom his family has been engaged in a long, violent feud. McKay's personal struggles are punctuated by brilliant slapstick setpieces that involve an exploding dam, raging waterfalls, and a primitive steam engine.

Enjoy the splendor of the historic Hollywood theatre, along with concessions and fresh pizza from the theatre's "pie hole".

The Saturday 2:00 pm matinee features live Unit Orchestra accompaniment with a special score created for this showing by Dean Lemire, rock star of the silent movie, playing the Beverly Ruth Nelson memorial organ.

Tickets are $12.00 at the door of the Hollywood Theatre.

The Hollywood is located at: 4122 NE Sandy Blvd, Portland, OR 97212.

Free parking for theatre patrons at the Broadway Medical Parking lot (located behind the theatre) during the clinic's non-office hours.

The Hollywood MAX station is two blocks from the theatre.
