Let’s all go to the movies, dahling. Pop-Up Cinema, a series of complimentary semi-impromptu screenings of some of our favorite films, takes place approximately twice per month in our private Screening Room, where a state-of-the-art projector, expansive 16 ft. screen, gold leaf ceilings, historic architectural details and plush surroundings provide the perfect setting for a memorable movie-going experience.
Dates, times and film selections are posted here when announced. Pop Up Cinema is always FREE to the public! Pop Up Cinema has limited seating. Due to popular demand, we now require reservations. Please reserve your seat by calling the hotel at 503-219-2094.
The Driftwood Room bartenders select a specialty cocktail to complement each Pop Up Cinema screening and wine, craft beer, cocktails and non-alcoholic sips are available for purchase at happy hour prices. Plus, Pop Up Cinema-goers can order tempting movie-friendly nibbles at happy hour prices for the duration of the film. We screen vintage movie trailers from the year of the featured movie during the first hour after the doors open.

Sunday, March 8th: Moulin Rouge! (2001) This will truly be Spectacular! Spectacular! on our 16′ HD Screen! Directed, produced, and co-written by Baz Luhrmann. It tells the story of a young English poet/writer, Christian (Ewan McGregor), who falls in love with the terminally-ill star of the Moulin Rouge, cabaret actress and courtesan Satine (Nicole Kidman). It uses the musical setting of the Montmartre Quarter of Paris, France. It was the first musical nominated for Best Picture in 10 years. And…in true Parisian Style, we will be launching our new Drifwood Room Absinthe Cocktails, the Satine, Green Dragon and Chrysanthemum.
