Cinema 21 Parking at the Cinema 21

Map/Directions from Google - click here

There are several good rail and TriMet bus lines that go very near the Cinema 21 (see below).


Please note that beginning on Monday, March 9, 2015, Cinema 21 patrons can no longer park in the Good Samaritan Hospital parking structure at NW 22nd and Kearney.

For many years Legacy Health System has generously allowed our customers to park there after 6:00 pm on weekdays and all day of Saturdays and Sundays. While Legacy attempts to navigate the city's processes to create off-street parking options for visitors to NW Portland, Cinema 21 also will continue our decades-long advocacy for creating real parking options for everyone who lives, works and visits the area.

Thanks for your patience and support while we work to create a solution.

Below is a copy of the Legacy letter that explains their future plans.

Northwest District Neighbors,

In an effort to protect our parking resources for patients and visitors once the Northwest Parking Plan is fully implemented, Legacy Good Samaritan Medical Center will activate a gated parking system at all of our parking structures and surface lots on Monday, March 9, 2015.

Legacy Good Samaritan is working hard with the City of Portland to make the necessary changes to city code that will allow our neighbors as well as employees and patrons of local businesses to continue parking in our lots afterhours and on weekends. Until the City makes a formal code change to allow a short-term pay-to-park option and long-term parking arrangements for residents, the public will not have access to Legacy Good Samaritan's parking resources. This process could take anywhere from a few months to a year, depending on City Council's decisions.

In the interim, those who attempt to take a ticket, park and leave Legacy Good Samaritan's parking garages without proper validation will be issued a $65 penalty upon exit of the gates. There will be clear signage at all parking structure entry points.

With the support of the Northwest District Association, Nob Hill Business Association and the Northwest Parking Stakeholder Advisory Committee, we have proposed the following to the City:

Long-Term Parking Arrangements for Residents and Employees -Residents of the Northwest District and employees of local businesses will be able to apply for an annual permit that would be consistent with the price of city permits. Permit holders would have access to Legacy Good Samaritan's parking structures and surface lots afterhours and on weekends (Monday-Thursday 6:00 p.m. - 7:00 a.m. and from 6:00 p.m. Friday through 7:00 a.m. on Monday).

Short-Term Parking - A short-term hourly pay-to-park model afterhours and on weekends (hours same as above) would allow those who enter the neighborhood for purposes such as shopping or dining to utilize Legacy Good Samaritan's parking resources.

We are advocating for City Council to expedite the lengthy code change process to allow Legacy Good Samaritan to implement the two parking components listed above. Once we are able to secure a code change, we will proactively communicate to ensure all interested neighbors know how to register for the annual Resident Parking Permit and that the short-term hourly pay-to-park option is available.

Thank you for your patience and understanding as we, alongside the rest of the community, adapt to the new parking landscape in Northwest Portland.

Driving Directions To The Cinema 21

The theatre is located on NW 21st Ave at Hoyt Street. If you are coming within the city, NW Glisan (one-way) to 21st Ave, then make a right, is a common way to get there. W. Burnside to 21st Ave is another way to get there. (If you aren't familiar with this part of town, it might be helpful to note that the streets in NW Portland are organized in alphabetical order.)

From the freeways: From I-405 (north or south), take the Everett Street exit. You'll want to pickup Glisan Street (one-way street). From I-405 North, you simply go straight at the first stoplight and turn left at the next light (Glisan). From I-405 South, you actually have to make a 360 degree turn bearing to your left to get onto Glisan from the Everett Exit (there's a sign). Once you get on Glisan, go about six blocks to NW 21st Ave, then turn right. The Cinema 21 is 1 1/2 block up on your right.
