Opened in February 1925 as the State Theatre with 730 seats, and a William Wood 2 Manual/8 Ranks theatre organ. It was renamed Vista Theatre in 1941, and in 1942 it became the 21st Avenue Theatre. It became Cinema 21 from March 30, 1962. Cinema 21 is located in a thriving area of Portland on 21st Avenue. It is open, showing movies and appears to be in great shape. It has some glowing neon that really stands out at night. This one is a treasure!
Cinema 21 hosts several film festivals, including the Portland Lesbian & Gay Film Festival. In 2014 an extra two screen were added.
