In 2010, the Portland City Council voted unanimously to give Ethos management authority for the Interstate Firehouse Cultural Center (IFCC). Built in 1910, this historic building has served as a cultural hub in the Overlook neighborhood for the past 30 years. Ethos is committed to supporting emerging and established theater companies, artists and community members by providing affordable rental rates for creative space. Our guests are partners who share in our vision; they are active agents promoting cultural diversity, challenging audiences and encouraging creativity. Currently Ethos partners with Rock ‘n’ Roll Camp for Girls and the Aspire Project to offer music and dance classes at IFCC for kids and adults.
IFCC is located at 5340 N. Interstate Ave, right next to Patton Square Park. The theater can accommodate 90 in fixed seats and 110 with additional seats. The space features ADA accessible front row seating and restroom, one green room, two large equity standard dressing rooms with bathrooms, showers and lockers and a lobby with concessions counter and refrigerator. The stage is 32’ wide and 26’ deep, and hardwired headsets are available for crew members.
Please contact Ethos’ Executive Director, Jedidiah Chavez, at 971-717-6903 to inquire about rental rates and set up a tour of the building.
