Woodburn theater help

WOODBURN, OR — We are trying to restore a theater that has been abandoned for 10 years. The theater has lots of qualities. If anyone has any leads for us to be able to get this theater up and going, our community would be grateful.

www.bigscreenbiz.com forums would be a good start.

Check out the restored single screen Chehalis Theater in Chehalis, Washington. I helped restore the projection booth there. It is a successful first run single screen theater again after it had been converted into a video rental store.

“Woodbun” should be Woodburn.

Have you seen the deep down condition of this dump… I mean REALLY looked at it thoroughly? Inside? Outside, Topside?

I, too, had the same notion some while back. The owner should be jailed for allowing this disgraceful state of affairs.

And have your researched the neighborhood of people? They would undo all of your hard work and big financial investment.

Why not hire an independent (NOT CITY) building inspector to give you the bottom line. And if you are still so keen, contact me: I live just up the road!

For seat, we can save you much money, by providing you new cinema seat from our Chinese seat factory directly.

As we know, most of the North America local suppliers get seats from Chinese factories, then resell them to the end-user to make large profit.

Why not buy direct ly from the original factory?

For example, a normal upholstered seat with a cupholder, steel armrest and rocker back, is about $60. With the shipment cost of approximately $10, it is $70 totally. But one similar seat in US local market can be sold at about $190.

For the import custom affairs, please do not worry, I will arrange it all for you, and send the seats to your place.

Thanks&Warm regards,

Hello, I can provide equipment and advice. We are located in Portland American Entertainment Products, LLC Chris Tel: 503.998.3200 or email Is this the PIC theatre? If so I did run some numbers last year. Tough market that would not be financially workable without some significant grant monies and tax breaks.

I imagine this is about the Pix Theater. It was opened in 1947.
