To Do

There is certainly no shortage of things to do in NE Portland, especially in the Alberta Arts District. This trendy area is known not only for its hipster art scene and fantastic food, but also for several historic 1920s-era theaters like the Hollywood, Alberta Rose and Roseway Theaters. Perhaps the coolest theater in the PNW, the Kennedy School is a former children’s school converted into a labyrinthine structure with theaters, bars, restaurants, and even a brewery. A fantastic spot for families and adults, the Kennedy School is so characteristically Portland-weird it can be hard to describe, best to experience it for yourself!
