Regal Cinemas donated the replacements, and the cost of installation was made possible by $31,858 in donations.
The Hollywood Theatre is a not-for-profit organization whose mission is to entertain, inspire, educate and connect the community through the art of film while preserving a historic Portland landmark.
“Our members and patrons have told us that they place a high priority on the theatre itself as not only a historic landmark, but as a vibrant cultural venue for the neighborhood and the city,” said theater manager Doug Whyte. “Our patrons are telling us that caring for the building itself should be one of our highest priorities.”
Whyte said other improvements to the building will make it more comfortable and more beautiful for patrons to enjoy.
