The Vanport Theater opened in August 1943 and on May 30, 1948 the theater was destroyed in a flood.
Vanport City was located just N of Portland, Oregon on the Columbia River opposite Vancouver, Wash. The name Vanport comes from combining VANcouver and PORTland. Vanport City was built in 1942 to house shipyard workers during WWII. The movie theater was built for those workers.
On May 30, 1948 at 4:05 pm the town was submerged when floodwaters breached the Columbia River embankment, causing loss of life and great property destruction. Vanport City is now referred to as North Portland.
