Greg Wood B.A. ’92 builds community through a passion for cinema, and film critics take notice in this Oregonian profile.

Wood bought Portland’s Roseway Theater in 2008, deciding to restore the building rather than gut it. The theater now brings together state-of-the art technology and the nostalgia of movie-going before the era of the megaplex. He has earned a dedicated fan base in the process–including neighbors and film aficionados alike.
