It's been too long, friends. So after months of no activity (the last UAL event was the Sept. Pedal Potluck Picnic), it's time to get things in high gear again, with...
Eastside Theater History Bicycle Tour
Sunday 16 December 2007

starting at 1:30pm

starting point: Hawthorne Hostel, 3031 SE Hawthorne Blvd.

Portland has so many great, old theaters! For some reason, this city still has a number of cinemas and vaudeville houses from the 'classic era'--1910's to 30's--still standing, some of which still are active theaters today. This bicycle ride will explore various neighborhood theaters on the east side of the Willamette--some still standing, some only a memory. The entire ride will cover approximately 6 miles in about 3+ hours of time. After the full ride, we hope to take in a movie at one of Portland's classic movie palaces; bring appropriate cash if you would like to join us!

Before the ride there will be the infamous GRACIES SUNDAY BRUNCH happening at the Hostel! It's potluck style (or bring a small donation). We start cooking at 11am, eating at noon. Fuel up before the ride!

Print out a flyer for the event here. (Note: Requires Adobe Acrobat or eqivalent.)

  1. I hope Pal's Shanty is on your list. It's rumored to be a former movie theater.
