The Playhouse Theater was located on the Northwest corner of SW 11th and SW Morrison. Built in 1910 the theater had 1,200 seats and opened as the Dufwin and later became the Alcazar, Music Box (before the SW Broadway theater) El Capitan and changed to Playhouse in 1932. The theater closed in 1950 and was torn down in January 1954 for a parking lot.
The movies on the marquee were shown at the Playhouse from 7/31/1946 thru 8/12/1946.

The Playhouse Theatre originally opened 17 Sept, 1910, on the corner SW Morrison at 11th. It was Portlands 2d 'palace'. it became the Dufwin, Alcazar, Music Box, El Capitan, and finally the Playhouse, where it mostly showed films. It was closed in June of 1950, and used for church services, with occasional stage events. Formally closed in Oct., '53, and demolished 1954. So we arent old enough to remember this one.
