The Venetian Theatre was a neighborhood theater in north Portland.

Portland’s street numbering changed in 1933. The Venetian was renamed the St. Johns Theatre in 1937.

In 1960, new owners renamed the theater the Northgate Theatre. In 1983, the theater became a duplex and returned to the St. Johns Theatre name.
