At first blush, Joy Cinema and Pub bears a striking resemblance to classic movie theaters with its intimate lobby, marquee surrounded by neon lights, and 1950s-style cartoon mural behind its concessions stand. However, this cinema differentiates itself from its forebears with a schedule of newly released Hollywood hits, generous pours of frothy microbrews, and occasional 3D features. Evening shows are "minor with parent" unless otherwise specified.

Located within the Cinetopia theater at Vancouver Mall, Brewtopia adds a gourmet twist to traditional comfort food and American cuisine. With the skill of cattle ranchers weaving new lassos from stalks of wheat, cooks mold half-pound burgers from Snake River Farms beef, craft sandwiches and wraps such as buffalo-chicken wraps and oyster po' boys, and design gourmet entrees such as cider-glazed Carlton Farms pork chops. Beyond Brewtopia proper, the adjoining cinema boasts four enormous GXL screens up to 80 feet with 4096p projection—4 times the resolution of Blu-ray—and an exclusive immersive 64.2 channel Dolby ATMOS sound system, five luxury-themed movie parlors, nine living rooms, and five grand auditoriums with steep stadium-style seating to help guests enjoy a clear view of the screen.

Cinema 21 may offer daily showings of new Hollywood and independent flicks, but it also tries to get patrons interacting more with movies, rather than simply coming to see a blockbuster and then leaving. It does this by following up screenings with Q&A sessions with major filmmakers, including Wim Wenders and Steven Soderbergh. The theater hosts fun sing-along screenings as well, which invite attendees to belt out the tunes of their favorite movie musicals. Cinema 21 even brings international work to American shores by participating in several film festivals throughout the year.

In the introductory class, a professional fire-dancing coach will cover basic poi movements performed on the sides of the body, such as weaves, spins, corkscrews, and more. The flameless poi used during the class neatly mimic the weight and feeling of fire, ensuring that when you decide to move on to fire for performance, crime fighting, or just make grilling a steak overly dramatic, you'll be ready.

Nestled beneath the luminous beacon of its old-timey marquee, the Clinton Street Theater cements its status as Portland’s oldest continuously running independent film house with a rotating slate of foreign films, documentaries, and cult classics. Weekly screenings of The Rocky Horror Picture Show and Repo: The Genetic Opera draw fervent cultists dressed as their favorite characters and boom-mic operators, complementing screenings of splattery horror flicks with thought-provoking opera from rising and renowned auteurs. The cylindrical glow from a whirring projector jets across the Clinton’s spacious theater, illumining arrivals from such directors as Sidney Lumet and Gus Van Sant, who is notorious for instructing his actors to break character midfilm to challenge texting film-goers to bare-knuckle brawls.

Minstrels, sword-swallowers, falconers—all were common sights on the streets of 16th-century European villages. Now, over the course of 13 days, a talented band of players descends upon The Oregon Renaissance Festival of Hillsboro to recreate those days of yore. Schooled in the methods of improv theater, actors inhabit their roles as fairies, sword-fighters, and members of the royal court, among others. Members of RoundTable Productions even suit up in knight's armor to compete in a joust attended by fair maidens and correspondents from ESPNMedieval.

While warhorses charge at one another, artisans in the marketplace hawk handmade clothing, jewelry, and wooden crafts. Ditto the festival's food purveyors, who satiate pre-industrial appetites with spinach pies, turkey legs, bread bowls of hearty soup, and steak on a stake. After a bite, hop aboard hand-powered rides or perform chaste dances to English rounds crooned in five-part harmony.
