Woodlawn Theater in a 1925 newspaper ad

The Dekum Street Theater is a performance and community event space, located between 8th Avenue and Durham Avenue on Northeast Dekum Street in Portland, Oregon.

Built as the Woodlawn Theater in 1911, the silent playhouse did not make the successful transition to sound, and for most of its life was put to commercial and light industrial use.

In 2018 work was begun to restore and renovate the theater as a live performance venue. The front lobby and lobby bar opened to the public in February, 2023.
