Wilsonville, Oregon cinema info

posted by Simon Overton on May 7, 2009 at 10:30 am

Do any local (older) Oregonians, in between Salem and Portland, have any knowledge of a now demolished cinema in Wilsonville, very close to the I-5 freeway?

The present site now has a Target store and yet, everyone I’ve asked have no memories of this unknown cinema… not even a photo at City Hall.

I am not an Oregonian, but Mike Rivest’s list of theaters for that area shows a Grand Parkway 3 theater once having existed in that general location and the address given there does correspond to a Target site.

That theatre was located at 2735 SW Parkway and was apparently a 3-screener that is now listed as demolished. (I’m in Medford, OR)

Thanks for the info-to-know folks. I think I’ll check with the local newspapers and see what their files have in store.

I drove around for 20 minutes looking for that theatre one day. Stupid target.
