About several blocks from my home is a fifth run movieplex, then unlike the multiplex theaters that are so prevalent these days, this is an old-school movie house.
It only seats several hundred people, so it is small and intimate! They have a small menu for appetizers and snacks, and a full bar.
They also show older movies, instead of the current releases; Periodically they show the hits from a few months ago, however occasionally they show classics from the 74s and 72s. I have been going to this theater for years, and I suppose it is one of the things that makes Portland, Oregon such an awesome location to live. This isn’t the only fifth run theater in Portland, it is one of a couple dozen of them, so the variety of movies every one of us have on any given night is insane! Smoking cannabis is legal in Portland, however there are still rules against smoking inside around other people! Cannabis smoke is no weird from tobacco smoke from a legal perspective, which means every one of us can’t get high at the movies! 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 movie. I guess 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 movieplex. If that kind of thing ever happens, I promise you it will happen in Portland first!
