Portland's Centers for the Arts

Portland's Centers for the Arts (stylized as Portland'5 Centers for the Arts),[1] formerly known as the Portland Center for the Performing Arts (PCPA), is an organization within Metro that runs venues for live theatre, concerts, cinema, small conferences, and similar events in Portland, Oregon, United States.

Antoinette Hatfield Hall

Established in 1987, the PCPA consists of three separate buildings: the Arlene Schnitzer Concert Hall, Antoinette Hatfield Hall, and Keller Auditorium.

Hatfield Hall itself is sometimes erroneously referred to as the Portland Center for the Performing Arts.[2] PCPA is the fifth-largest center for performing arts in the United States, with more than 1,000 performances and one million patrons annually (as of 2007).[3]

PCPA changed its name to "Portland'5 Centers for the Arts" in 2013. The "5" in the brand name is intended to highlight that the organization has five venues,[1] counting separately the three theaters that occupy Antoinette Hatfield Hall.
