SEATTLE, WA — Seattle PI had a great piece the other week about the city’s theaters over the years. It looks not only at the ones still operating but others that have been adaptively reused.
A splendid collection of photos. If only only other cities had the sense of history that apparently thrives in Seattle.
You will want to check out Playhouse Square in Cleveland,Ohio. They have at least 4 movie palaces from the early 1920’s that all have been restored and are in active use today. These theaters were all redone as part of the same project- quite an achievement for the people of Cleveland. Three of these are the State, Allen, and Hanah theaters.One of these also has a mural in it’s lobby which is a must see!
I agree. Playhouse Square is outstanding! So there is Seattle and Cleveland and ??????
