NW Film Center/Whitsell Auditorium

1219 SW Park Avenue, Portland, OR, 97205

Located on the lower level of the Belluschi Building, this auditorium is the perfect venue for public lectures and performances and private film screenings and premieres. The Whitsell Auditorium features a stage, 376 fixed seats, and the most contemporary audio and visual capabilities. Combined with the nearby Andrée Stevens Room, it's ideal for a lecture-reception package. For conferences, it's an ideal location for a large group; add our Stevens Room, Sondland/Durant Trustee Room, West Conference Room, Crumpacker Family Library and/or Miller Gallery to accommodate group activities and smaller lectures.

The Whitsell Auditorium is the primary screening venue for the Northwest Film Center, which conducts an active year-round exhibition program featuring foreign, classic, experimental, and independent works presented in thematic series, special retrospectives, and visiting artist programs.
