I recently attended a special event here after not having visited for about 5 years. I love the old building and big old theater seats. This is part of the McMenamins holdings in Portland and always promises fun, decent food, and good beer. If you're attending a movie, the menu of pizza, one salad, nachos, and popcorn is a welcome...

Great place to watch a movie along with some delicious nachos and a drink from the McMennamins bar. They play new and classic movies.

I recently visited the Mission Theater near downtown Portland. All movies before 5 pm are only $2! The theater is one of the many McMenamin's properties throughout Portland. Therefore, not only do you get the movie experience in a large space with a balcony, but you get a large selection of drinks, full bar and food menu. I have never... More

I absolutely love how they have taken an old play house and turned it into a theater! I also LOVE the fact that you can enjoy some snacks and beer during the movie!! AND it's all so affordable!! My only complaint is I was anticipating a little more variety in their substantial food besides pizza and Caesar salad. But in... More

This was the coolest movie theater I have ever visited. Staff said they just opened and remodeled. You will find a unique movie theater experience at the Mission Theater & Pub. We visited the theater twice and sat in the balcony level both times. Although there are other unique sitting opportunities that you will never find in other movie theaters.... More

The McMenamins have a well-deserved reputation as preservationists, repurposing old buildings for the enjoyment of others. Here, here! But many of their properties, including the Mission Theater, have equally deserved reputations for poor service and mediocre food. The McM's seem to get a pass for this, either because of their preservation work or because of the McM mystique of funky... More

The movies are low cost and are generally second run, but it's a nice venue with a balcony and great beer. The food is a miss and they have no fryer, so McMenamins famous tots aren't available.

Mission Theater has more than movies. On a recent visit to Portland we enjoyed an adaptation the Debussy opera "Pelleas and Melisande" done by the Oregon Theater Opera company. It was an innovative performance with singing interspersed with clips from the film "Last Year at Marienbad". You don't often get the opportunity to have a nice bottle of Edgefield pinot... More
