PDX’s music program, through the use of music, works to create an environment that is relaxing, pleasing and stress-free for travelers. As a part of the PDX family, entertainers help the airport build customer loyalty through positive, personal interactions with passengers.
Every season includes a variety of live music performances; presenting the best local jazz, classical and contemporary artists, mixed with new and innovative styles and approaches. Whether traveling to or from PDX, or stopping to dine or shop, the airport invites visitors to pause awhile and enjoy its diverse selection of music.

As a component of the PDX Art Program, the airport teamed up with the Hollywood Theatre, a nonprofit movie theatre located in Portland’s historic Hollywood District, to create a 17-seat movie theatre. Located on Concourse C, the Hollywood Theatre at PDX is part of the Port’s rotating art program. The theatre entertains travelers with short films telling stories specific to the Pacific Northwest. It also provides artist residency opportunities, inviting collaboration between national/international media artists and local filmmakers, and hosts special events. Opened in early 2017, the Hollywood Theatre at PDX is free to travelers, who can drop to watch films while waiting for their flights. All films are family-friendly; the short films play consecutively on approximately a 1-hour loop.
