Submission: 5th Avenue Cinema, on the Portland State University campus, offers free/cheap movies which are open to the public. Most showtimes are Friday, Saturday, and Sunday. We screen an eclectic selection of camp, cult, classic, and contemporary independent and mainstream films. Oregon’s only student run cinema has been operating non-profit since 1989. Our goals are to provide further education for PSU students interested in film, as well as a fun place for people to see something they wouldn’t ordinarily get to see on the big screen. The general public is always invited to attend and there is FREE popcorn at every show.

Admission prices are as follows:

FREE for PSU students, faculty, staff & alumni w/ID.
$2 for all other students & seniors.
$3 General Admission.

This weekend the 5th Avenue Cinema screens the 1983 classic “The Big Chill.”
