News About This Theater
- Dec 26, 2006 — Portland, Oregon Theater for sale
The Mt. Tabor Theater was named after an extinct volcano located within the city boundaries of Portland. It was originally opened in 1914 as the Alhambra Theater, and by 1941 had been renamed Mt. Tabor Theater. It was still open in 1950. Although it closed and fell on hard times, it still displayed the name on the marquee and some unique neon tubing. It is situated across and down S.E. Hawthorne Street from the Bagdad Theatre, which has fared much better.
The Mt. Tabor Theater became the Mt. Tabor Legacy, a concert venue/lounge/pool hall. It also hosts special events such as the Whitewater Film Festival and sporting events shown on the screen. In 2009, it was taken over by new management, booking major acts as well as local bands, and in 2013 was renamed Alhambra Theater again. It was closed in 2016 and became a video arcade and bar.
