If you grew up going to drive-in movies, you know what a treat it is. The Portland Expo Center has created an authentic drive-in movie experience on our 53 acre campus. Unlike drive-ins of the past, the PDX Drive-in Movie Spectacular! boasts clear digital projection, plus sound through outdoor speakers and FM signal. Our giant screen drive-in is an all-ages event that is a throw-back with a modern twist. No car? No problem! We also welcome guests via bicycle and TriMet (the Max Yellow Line ends right in our parking lot).
The PDX Drive-in Movie Spectacular! is celebrating its fifth season with five classic movies you’ll enjoy August 14th – 18th, 2019 only at the Portland Expo Center:
