Location & Travel


Portland Horror Film Festival™ takes place at the beautifully restored Hollywood Theatre, a prohibition-era movie palace built in 1926. We’re told the theater has its own share of haunts, so don’t be surprised if something taps you on the shoulder while you’re enjoying a film, or see something flitter backstage when the lights go down.

We recommend the DOUBLETREE BY HILTON in Lloyd Center. The Double Tree is on the MAX light rail, just 1 stop away from the Hollywood Theatre! 1 Queen room is $179/night + tax. Double Queen room is $189/night + tax. Book your room online.

The Banfield Value Inn is located at 1525 NE 37th Ave, and is a short walk from the Hollywood Theatre (about 5 mins). They have a website, but the best way to guarantee your reservation is to call them. Phone: (503) 280-1400
The Banfield Motel is only a couple blocks away and is a very basic, no-frills hotel, and probably the only hotel within walking distance, depending on your idea of ‘walking distance.’

Public Transportation

The theater is conveniently accessible by mass transit, via MAX (our lightrail system) or bus lines 12 (on Sandy Blvd), 66x, 75, or 77. Your stop: Hollywood Transit Center. Walk north two blocks to the theater. From the Airport you can take the RED line (CITY CENTER / HILLSBORO) and get off at the Hollywood District stop, then take the elevator (or climb the stairs) to the pedestrian walkway go north and walk 2 blocks to the theatre. Trimet.org is our public transit website and has tools for plotting your journeys around town.

Lyft and Uber

Lyft and Uber both operate in Portland, OR. Both are inexpensive alternatives to Radio Cab and can be more convenient than taking the Bus or the MAX light rail. BUT, as with any ride-sharing app, please be safe and let people know where/when you’re heading somewhere in a Lyft or Uber. Don’t be afraid to talk to your fellow attendees, people are pretty friendly here in Portland and if you’re all going to the same place, there’s safety as well as economy in numbers.


The downstairs auditorium at the theatre is wheelchair accessible.  There’s a virtual tour on the Hollywood Theatre website, so you can see what the hallways and entry areas look like.

Portland’s historic Hollywood District features a wide variety of delicious foods and eateries, for practically any budget. The restaurants and eateries below are close to the theater, and there are many more in Yelp, but if you are willing to venture further into the madness of Portland, then the world can be your unspeakable oyster!
