Air travel is just plain stressful. Of course, you know that.
Portland International Airport (PDX) offers the perfect antidote: movies.
Waiting for the plane to begin a three-week trip to visit friends and relatives, I discovered The Hollywood Theatre, a microcinema.
I walked in, sat down for 20 minutes, and the tension just melted away. I totally forgot I was at the airport. When I got up to head back to my gate, I was relaxed and had a smile on my face. The feeling was amazing.
A bonus: the movies are free. Just walk in and sit down. Stay for one of the short films (by Oregon filmmakers) or watch them all.
