Originally launched in 1948, the Academy Theater was a popular Southeast Portland destination until its closure in the 1970's. After its closure, the once charming Streamline Moderne gem fell into disrepair, but a full-scale renovation was completed in 2006, including careful restoration of the glittering rounded lobby with its soaring, metallic two-story dome.

Great attention has been paid to every detail of the project. Using vintage photos from the original opening night, even the theater's signature marquee has been recreated to imbue the building with authentic 1940's charm.

The new and improved Academy Theater features three theaters with Dolby sound, as well as reclining stadium seating with generous leg room. Also available is a plentiful selection beer, wine and tasty offerings from Flying Pie Pizzeria. On-site babysitting is offered as well, at a cost of $5 per child. There is ample free parking in the rear.
