Weeknight happenings

I will be in Portland 12/9 - 12/14. I will be in training sessions for my job all day and was wondering what there is to do after 6:00pm on weeknights. I don't drink, so I'm not interested in the bar/club thing. I won't have a rental car so anything close to the Hilton Portland & Executive Tower would be great. As a second question, are the retail stores open in the evenings downtown or do they close early? Thanks!

<<I agree about Pioneer Square later at night..homeless kids in large groups ..>>

I just finished reading a book about the street families in the US. It takes place here in Portland and revolves around the girl who was killed on the east side of the Steele Bridge. "All God's Children". It is a startling look at the homeless downtown (many of them are from good homes and have no reason to be homeless.)

Oh yes, I had forgotten about the theatres downtown...not only movies but there could be something goinng on at the Keller Auditorium (although that could get spendy).

Another movie theater option, and much sadly overlooked even by downtown dwellers is the Northwest Film Center. Located at the Portland Fine Arts Museum. They show wonderful films and retrospectives that normally can't be seen anywhere else and also are not available on DVD.
