Oriental Theater, 1969

The Oriental Theater was described as having “wildly exotic, almost surreal appearance of the auditorium and other interior public spaces.” On SE Grand between Belmont and Morrison, it was built in 1927 at the same time as the extant Weatherly Building just to its north. As was so often the case in Portland, it was demolished in 1970 to make way for a parking lot.
