We are so excited to be bringing the movies back and are doing so with every necessary precaution. Our goal is to offer a safe and comfortable movie-going experience, and hope that you enjoy coming back to the theater as much as we love having you! 

Beginning September 8, the Laurelhurst Theater along with (Cinema 21, Hollywood Theater, Living Room Theaters, Cinemagic and Broadway Metro in Eugene), will be requiring proof of vaccination for all of our patrons.  Like the many restaurant/bars, concert halls, sports and entertainment facilities who have implemented this requirement we feel as a community-based organization, this is the right step to protect our audiences and staff.
For proof of vaccination, we will accept one of the following:

  • Your physical vaccination card
  • A clear, legible photo of your vaccination card
  • A digital vaccination record
  • A negative result from a COVID-19 test (PCR only; test taken within 72 hours)
You may also be asked to show your photo ID along with proof of vaccination.
If you arrive at the theater without proof of vaccination or a negative
COVID -19 test you will be denied entry.
Children under 5 may attend accompanied by a vaccinated adult.
Masks are still required in all areas of the building, including in your seat when not actively eating or drinking.

All of our staff are fully vaccinated.  See below for additonal measures.

Pre-sale Tickets and Assigned Seating 

Online ticket ordering is encouraged as it will help to minimize transactions and assure that your preferred seats are reserved. Theater seating is now assigned which allows us to provide a one-seat buffer around occupied areas. This also means no more worrying about getting the seat you want, or whether you'll be able to sit with your party. Keeping that in mind, it is crucial that if you are coming to see a movie with other people, you all purchase tickets in one transaction.

Masks Required
All employees must wear a face covering or mask. Patrons must wear a face covering at all times, except when eating or drinking.

Reduced Capacity 

We have reduced the number of seats available per auditorium and have a one-seat buffer between groups.

Hand Sanitizer 

Hand sanitizer is available in the lobby and at the entrance to each auditorium. 

Employee Health Training 

All employees will be trained on CDC guidelines for COVID19 safety. 

Upgraded HVAC systems 

All ventilation in the theater has been upgraded with commercial grade air filtration. This includes Photohydroionization, Ionization and HEPA filters. (The same type of systems that are used in hospitals and doctors’ offices) This helps to reduce Viruses, Bacteria, Molds, Odors and Particulates.

The Laurelhurst Theater became part of Portland's cultural and architectural history when it first opened in 1923. The original single screen could seat 650 people and was one of the first art deco style theaters of the period. Over the years the Laurelhurst has been added onto and now offers four auditoriums with modern amenities but still maintains its classic appeal. Now celebrating our 20th year as a theater and pub. Thank you Portland!

Enjoy beer, wine, pizza, salads, popcorn and candy. All of which may be brought into the auditoriums to enjoy while you watch your movie.

The theater's four screens now offers first run films, bringing the best of modern cinema, Independent, art and classic film to Portland's movie lovers.
