That concert is not actually happening tonight.
Econoline's point is that parking minimums make absolutely no sense, and never will. Developers are really good at studying the issue and determining how much off-street parking their tenants will demand, then they build enough parking supply to meet that demand. Parking minimums are an example of politicians and city planners deciding they can come up with a magic formula for parking, when really it is a case by case basis best left to the market. Most neighborhoods in Portland have plenty of street parking, plus there are a lot of people who don't have cars these days (and that number will grow). The problem is existing homeowners feel they have a right to park right in front of their houses instead of a block or two away. It's ridiculous.
Didn't The Pharcyde do a whole video like this too?
They need to renovate the whole theater, not just add digital projection. The screen is too low (try watching a sub-titled movie with someone sitting in front of you), the seats are old and uncomfortable, the bathrooms are sub-par, and worst of all they don't sell beer or decent food. We expect better from an independent Portland theater.
I believe Cinemagic at SE 20th/Hawthorne is playing it in good old 2D, 24fps, 35mm.
Belmont, those are maximum rates, not required rates. There is nothing stopping a taxi company from setting lower rates. They tend not to, of course, because there is so little competition.
Usually I'm fine with apartment buildings, even when they are boring. After all, they can't all be gems. This one, however, is a huge insult to the theater next door. They could have built the apartment at an angle, so that the theater would not be obscured to drivers heading up Sandy. Instead, they built a box at the worst possible angle so that the theater is partially blocked. You can see in old pictures how the previous neighboring building respected the theater...this apartment does not, and the developer should be ashamed. I hope people donate to this marquee, which will at least help it stand out more.
