Forgot A Book? No Worries- You Can Now Watch Movies at Airports

A rendering of what PDX's movie theater is expected to
look like.
What do you do while killing time at the airport? Read, check email, chase the kids around, sit in the bar? Watch the kids run around from the bar? Soon, you will be able to spend your layover watching movies. Portland International Airport will soon be the latest airport to include a movie theater in it's list of amenities.

The theater will have  vintage theme and will start by airing short films made by local filmmakers.

Minneapolis-Saint Paul International and Miami International also have theaters. Conversely, Asian airports have had movie theaters for years. Singapore's Changi Airport even has two 24-hour tehaters that show new movies for free. And Hong Kong's airport even has an IMAX screen.
