Many Free Movie Nights in Portland

Related on Pipeline: Our Portland Events Calendar & Ticket Giveaways

I knew Portland had several free movie nights, but I did not know there were so many. Luckily, Devra (@webspinster), made a list and sent it over to us. Now you can see a free movie 2 or 3 nights a week and spend your money on booze instead. :)

    It seems that Alberta St. Pub doesn’t do Monday night movies any more. stopped posting a year an a half ago (the last entry saying they’ve given up the ghost). The Pub Calendar of events no long lists movies as part of its entertainment.
