Bagdad Movie Theater and Pub in Portland, OR

Popular Portland pub and picture palace

Bagdad Theater has undergone major upgrades and overall improvements to show first-run movies: 50% larger screen, 20,000-watt Surround Sound, K Prime digital projector, and new luxurious rocker seating! The menu includes an expanded tap selection and grab-and-go theater classics like fresh pizza slices, popcorn and candy. Additional menu items are available to deliver to those in the balcony seats.

This marvelous relic of Hollywood's Golden Age is a movie palace full of wonder and surprises. For nearly four generations now, the Bagdad's Mediterranean/neon persona and daily films have made it a Portland movie theater icon nestled in the vibrant Hawthorne District neighborhood. The interior is an attraction in and of itself, with barreled arches, ornate wrought-iron fixtures, brilliant mosaics and painted Mediterranean designs and characters.

Kick back in the theater and enjoy a slice of pizza and a handcrafted ale during the show, or come early and enjoy dinner in the casual pub that fronts the theater – but beware,  outdoor tables in the summertime may be hard to come by! It's some of the best people-watching among pubs in Portland.

Bagdad allows pets at our sidewalk seating only.
