From shanghaied sailors to opium dens, Portland’s illicit past is legendary.

“Mr. Chairman, I will state that there is one port on the Pacific Coast that has always been known as the greatest crimping den in America. I refer to the port of Portland.”
—Andrew Furuseth, President, International Seamen’s Union, in testimony before Congress in 1911

Stop by McMenamins Mission Theater in Portland Friday, October 11, 2013, for a special free-to-the-public screening of “Portland Noir”! Part of the award-winning Oregon Experience television series co-produced by Oregon Public Broadcasting and the Oregon Historical Society, this documentary will delve into Portland’s sordid past in an attempt to unravel fact and lore.
