As far as a McMenamins location goes, the Bagdad certainly does not disappoint in their offering of tasty microbrewed creations. You'll get your Rubys, Hammerheads, and Terminators alongside standard McMenamins fare (sans the oil-drenched

Great date idea. Go here get food, drink and a movie for not too much money plus you get all in the same place.

My husband and I go to the Bagdad for a cheap date whenever we get a chance. You can see movies that were just recently at the theatre for $3, plus grab a beer and pizza. The lines for tickets and food can be quite long, but it is totally worth it to have a chance to kick back in the comfortable seats, eat, and watch movies on a big screen. The theatre is big enough to seat 700 people so you don't have to worry about people getting in your way. You should watch out for the railings on the balcony, they can block your view. We love to visit the Bagdad and plan to take our daughter there when she is older for the matinees.

We love the Bagdad Theatre for a number of reasons.... great prices (particularly on the weekends) for second-run movies; decent food; a great seating arrangement; a fun location (in the midst of our artsy-schmartsy district); well, I could go on and on! We like how there's a bit more room than the more modern-day theatres, and they even have tables at the back that, while mainly for those in wheelchairs, also work really well for families with restless little ones! All in all, a great family place that befits the rainy Northwest!

PROS: Prices; family-friendly; food; seating arrangement.
CONS: Parking can sometimes be a bit of a hassle, but don't let that stop you!

Don't doubt the spelling - it is indeed without an "h" -- this is one of Portland's last remaining classic old-time theaters, located along an eclectic and revitalized area known as Hawthorne. In recent years, it's become part pub, with light fare such as sandwiches, pasta, salads, pizza, and of course, a healthy selection from the local breweries.

The Bagdad Theatre and Pub is a local icon in the Hawthorne community and with good reason too. When you walk in the doors the unique architecture ignites your curiosity and imagination and that is before you even start watching the movie. This theatre really has it all: good food, cheap prices, quality movies, great location, and beer. What more is there to say?

PROS: Cheap, Fun Location, Great Pizza
CONS: Limited Access if Under 21

Where else can you go and get beer, pizza and a movie all at the same place? Bagdad theater is the only place I have found for the combo. Pretty cool enviroment to sit back and enjoy a movie.
My girlfriend and I usually go here once or twice a month. We always seem to have a good time.

With it's middle eastern decor, large theater complete with upper balcony, and friendly atmosphere, Mcmenamin's Baghdad Theater on Hawthorne is worth the experience. Movies should be fun without going broke! At the Baghdad, not only your tummy be satisfied, but your wallet as well! Not in the mood to see a flick? Pop in the their restaurant and bar with it 's comfy booths and large windows that view the unique shops along Hawthorne. Don't forget to bring the kids! With matinee times on the weekends, it can be a family place as well as a get-together for your pals on a Friday night!

PROS: Good/cheap eats, cheap movie prices, great decor.
CONS: Under 21 needs parental guardian, not a large variety of films every week.

The Bagdad is my favorite theatre. Your experience here is a genuine one. The old fashioned paramount theatre has an elegant appeal and the audience makes you feel at home. Viewers are relaxed and have a more interactive attitude than at the usual sterile surroundings you experience at general theatres.

You can have a choice of pizza and other excellent foods, as well as have most any drink you desire, hard or soft alcohol included.

I say you have to experience it if you want to experience Portland~

Although I think that the theater is cheap and wonderful, the beer is good and the food is delicious, I have had the worst experience with the service--to the point where I wont eat there again. My boyfriend and I placed an order for garlic toast, and to make a long story short, they gave our oder away, took 45 MORE minutes after we found that out, then FINALLY a waitress *dropped* a to go container with 3 shriveled pieces of cold, soggy toast on our table and stalked off. No appology--from her, or the waitress that had been serving us drinks, or anyone. Unfortunately we had allready both paid and tipped, because we would have done niether had we had the chance not to. I mean, come on, we're talking over an hour total waiting time for some cooked bread with butter and chopped up garlic...

PROS: beer&movies...
CONS: common f-ing courtesy...

The fact that this theater of almost first-run movies costs only about 3 dollars is topped only by the fact that you can order and pizza and beer and eat it while you watch. cool architecture also.

I agree with other reviewers that this theater is beautiful. Worth the few dollars just to see the inside and you get a movie too. We went and sat at the bar before the movie since we got there early to beat the lines. Service was good

The Baghdad is one of my favorite places in Portland. The decor makes you feel like you're in an old castle or something. The movies are of the second-run, not quite on video tape yet variety. The tickets are cheap, though, and I'd rather wait for my new release du jour to make it the Bagdad than see it at the megagooglemultiplex anyday of the week.

This was a fun place to go to and get pizza and drinks. I went with a small group and we had fun, but didn't like any of the movies available. I would like to see a movie there, but will take into consideration the comment made by one

If only the McMenamin brothers would come to LA. The Bagdad is everything a movie theater should be: cheap, big, airy, lots of seats, leg room, pizza and good beer. It's definitely one of the bright spots of PDX.

I moved away from Portland and realized how much I took the Bagdad for granted. How cool is it that you can watch a movie (granted, one thats been around for a while) and eat pizza and drink beer all at the same time? The weekend
