Tickets on Sale NOW for the 5th Annual PDX Drive-In Movie Spectacular!

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). 

Thank you for making our 5th season our best yet! We had a great week!

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:
