Portland’s Living Room Theaters plans Florida sequel

BOCA RATON, FL — Another theatre in the popular Living Room Theaters chain will open this fall. They set themselves apart from the competition by providing a cafe and all digital screens.

The theater, part of a $19 million complex that also features classrooms and offices, would be used by film students during the day, then become a venue for the kind of independent and foreign films Living Room specializes in on nights and weekends. But, unlike at its Portland sibling, no alcohol will be served.

“The university is hoping to build up cultural life on campus, and it creates a captive audience for us,” Rimoch said. “It’s a win-win situation.”

Is that Portland, here in Oregon or the other Portland(s), such as Maine or elsewhere?

Portland, Oregon.

I’ll lend the Boca location my enthusiastic support, but I get the feeling they’ll have spells of playing to mostly empty chairs given the fickle local market. Quite often, I’ve had private screenings by default at Shadowwood and Mizner (including tonight for “The Secret of Kells”) for lack of local enthusiasm over certain alt fare.
