The Clinton Street Theater has always been about community. We imagine ourselves to be the "Clubhouse of the Portland Anarchist Jurisdiction"--a place to come and be with friends and family; a place where strangers are only friends you haven't met yet. We miss everyone, and this past year certainly taught us that humanity is fragile and we need to do everything in our power to take care of each other.
We know how much you enjoy hanging with just your friends, so, while we are in the process of figuring out our regular programming, how about a private rental??!!
As I write this, we are allowed to be fully open with no mask mandate or socially distancing requirements. That said, for private events, we prefer to keep the number of guests to 50 or fewer unless it's an indepdent film screening, a corporate event, or a special life event like a memorial service, graduation or wedding.
(Note: We cannot screen ROCKY HORROR PICTURE SHOW at a private screening. However, you can dance the Time Warp any Saturday night at midnight (doors at 11, pre-show at 11:30) by purchasing a ticket in advance.)
Our concessions have always consisted of only popcorn and candy, so, it's okay for you to bring in food from the outside. We don't care at all if you have your event catered by an outside company.
You cannot bring in outside alcohol. We offer a wide assortment of beer/wine and hard cider for sale to those over 21.
If this rental is primarily for children under 12, ideally you would provide a 2:1 ratio of children to adults. And the number of children in the theater must be limited to 30. Children need to stay in their seats, and under no circumstances can they be allowed to play on or near the stage.
Let me know if you have any other questions or want to confirm a booking by sending an email to info@CSTPDX.COM.
