Upcoming Events
Located in the Brooklyn neighborhood, the Aladdin Theater first opened as a vaudeville house in 1928, then became a family movie theater for about four decades, and later an adult movie theater in the ’70s and ’80s. It’s been a music venue since 1993, bringing rock ’n’ roll shows to this otherwise residential corner of Southeast Portland (it’s also host to stand-up comedy and podcast tapings). The original movie theater layout is barely modified—the first floor is partially seated, with more seating in the overhanging balcony to accommodate the building’s 620-person capacity. There’s some standing room up by the stage, which gets pretty wild during the mosh-heavy concerts like Ty Segall or Thee Oh Sees. But the Aladdin mostly hosts lower-key big-name acts like David Crosby and Judy Collins. Its attached bar, the Lamp, has decent food and excellent happy hour deals. You can tell if the Aladdin’s got a show going based on the illumination or darkness of its sea foam green-and-red neon marquee, which is topped with a little smoking genie’s lamp. CIARA DOLAN
