Dollar theaters between Seattle and Portland?

This probably belongs in Other but hopefully it can stay here for a little bit because I imagine I'd get more responses in this forum. My friends and I are going to go on a road trip from Seattle to Portland in a few days and I was wondering if anyone knew any dollar theaters that we can swing by along the way. Thanks!

The Academy Theater in Portland is $4 a movie but the theater has pizza, beer, and the quality of the screen and sound system is on par with a first run theater, if not better.

They do B1G1 on Tuesday and a double feature for $6 on Mondays.

$1 theaters out West are few and far between. I know I've never seen any out here. Our cheap theater has only 4 screens and is $3.75.

We used to have 2.50$ theater, but it went out of business.

There was a 2.00$ for 2 movie feature at the old parkland movie theater, but it burned down.

Downtown Portland has a Djangos I used to shop. Unforunately I haven't been down there in a few years, I assume it's still around.

The Gateway Movies 8 in Federal Way (about 1/2 way between Tacoma and Seattle) has $1 Tuesdays and $2 Every other days.

They are located at 2501 Gateway Ctr Blvd S. Federal Way if you want to look them up. Currently "The Dark Knight" is still playing, so if you can't wait for it's rerelease, there you go...

Also playing currently "Beverly Hills Chihuahua", "Fireproof", "Nights in Rodanthe", "Saw V", "Eagle Eye", "Quarantine", "Body of Lies", "W", and "High School Musical 3"

So if it's on DVD or soon to be on DVD, this is the place to see them big.

The CD/Game Exchange has a few locations in the Portland/Gresham Area.

Both have quite large $5 and $2.50 DVD sections. I've found some true gems in there. Last big purchase was The Mist: 2 Disc in mint condition for $5. Basically if they get too much of one movie they movie overstock to the $5 and $2.50 section; apparently the employees didn't realize that the 2-Disc was more valuable.

Everyday Music is also supposed to be good.

My friend and I have spent most of his time back in town checking out $3 movies at the Regal East Valley 13, which has apparently been a discount theater for about two months. I remember seeing No Country For Old Men there and it wasn't a dollar theater, but it is now.

Sonic Boom records and Easy Street records are some local record stores in Seattle.

Rocket Records in Tacoma

Here is a good link:

Well, since I live in Seattle, my interest is more stuff on the road from Seattle to Portland. I want to go places on the trip.

Django's was no longer there. We're still down here driving around though.
