McMenamins is a well-known classic among Portlanders. With locations all throughout the Portland Metro Area, most anyone can appreciate their artistic pubs with hand-crafted beer. One special feature of McMenamins includes their Theatre Pubs where great flicks, handcrafted brews, and simple eats come together. Mission Theatre is conveniently located in downtown NW Portland. This theatre is one of my favorites; featuring both ground floor and balcony seating for an enjoyable evening. Every Wednesday night is Mission Theatre’s Classic Burger, Beer & Movie for $10.50. In addition, Mission Theatre occasionally hosts NW Film Festival events, live music, and select football games. St John’s Pub located in North Portland is also a well-known spot, hosting theatre-goers with comfy couches and plush theatre seating. I do not want to forget one of the oldest theatre pubs and classics; the Baghdad theatre located in Portland’s SE Hawthorne district.
For show times and locations please call McMenamin’s Theatre line at (503) 249-7474 or visit McMenamin’s Website.
