Movie Fan?

The Oregon Film Museum celebrates the art and legacy of films and film-making in the State of Oregon.

Why Oregon? Our unique landscapes allows film-makers to use Oregon as a backdrop for just about anywhere. We've been the desert, the mountains, river, and the sea. Sometimes we're California, Georgia, and a South Pacific Island.

Housed in the old Clatsop County Jail, the museum invites visitors to explore the films and production behind making movies in Oregon. Wander through this building that was an actual working jail (from 1914 - 1976) and the scene of the famous opening jail break from the Goonies.
