What's New

CRTOS and the Hollywood Theatre present the second film of the Science Fiction silent movie series.


Saturday, September 24, 2016, 2:00 PM

A visually awe-inspiring science fiction classic from the silent era, Metropolis is known for its spectacular sets and leading edge visual effects.

This influential Fritz Lang science-fiction film presents a highly stylized futuristic city where a beautiful and cultured utopia exists above a bleak underworld populated by mistreated workers. When the privileged youth Freder discovers the grim scene under the city, he becomes intent on helping the workers. He befriends the rebellious teacher Maria, but this puts him at odds with his authoritative father, leading to greater conflict.

Long time Oaks Park organist Dean Lemire will provide live accompaniment on the Beverly Ruth Nelson memorial organ.

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

Tickets are $12.00 at the door of the Hollywood Theatre or online at

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

October 2016 - "The Phantom of the Opera" (1925) Martin Ellis scoring the film
November 2016 – "20,000 leagues under the Sea" (1916) Dean Lemire scoring the film
