I write like it's my job - because it is! I have a Master's in English and love words: crossword puzzles, Scrabble games, Wordle, and, of course, good, old-fashioned books.
I'm a writer and editor at OnlyInYourState, and a contributing writer at Cincinnati Magazine. I love the Great Outdoors and am endlessly awestruck by this beautiful country of ours. Coffee keeps me going, yoga keeps me sane, my kids keep me grounded, and my writing keeps me inspired.
Portland is a place that celebrates the arts, with inspired art communities and museums all around the city. But perhaps the most famous and iconic is the Hollywood Theatre. Built in 1926, the Hollywood Theatre is an Oregon Landmark; a place that celebrates the old, and welcomes the new. While most well-known for showing classic film reels on its 50-foot screen, the Hollywood also shows experimental titles, art house flicks, and regularly hosts film festivals in its historic building. The Hollywood Theatre has welcomed many famous actors and directors over the years, and continues to shine as an artistic center in the community.
The Hollywood Theatre isn’t simply a historic Oregon landmark; it’s the creative cornerstone of the Portland art community, and a place with a vision that continues to reach far beyond its historic halls. Check out showtimes, events, and ticket information at the Hollywood Theatre website.
