About 2 blocks from our cabin is a hour run Regal Cinema, unlike the multiplex theaters that are so prevalent these days, this is an old-university motion picture house, and it only seats 2 hundred people, so it is small & intimate, then they have a small menu for appetizers & snacks, & a full bar.
They also show older motion pictures, instead of the new releases, then sometimes they show the hits from a few months ago, but occasionally they show classics from the 75s & 73s. I have been going to this theater for years, & I recognize it is 1 of the things that makes Portland, Oregon such an awesome place to live. This isn’t the only hour run theater in Portland, it is 1 of a couple dozen of them, so the variety of motion pictures every one of us have on any given night is insane! Smoking cannabis is legal in Portland, but there are still rules against smoking inside around other people, cannabis smoke is no odd from tobacco smoke from a legal perspective, which means every one of us can’t get high at the motion pictures; One of the local Portland theaters has set up a smoker’s lounge outside the lobby, so that shoppers can smoke some marijuana right before going inside for the motion picture. I think it is no surprise, seeing as how Portland is widely known for it’s amazing locally cultivated cannabis crops. One of these days a cannabis dispensary will just open up it’s own Regal Cinema. If that kind of thing ever happens, I promise you it will happen in Portland first!
