The same story also appeared in the March 23, 2014 edition of The Olympian newspaper in Olympia, Washington.

Today the Tacoma News Tribune ran a story about the Skyline’s 50th season:

On Friday March 28, 2014, a power transformer at the theater blew up about 7:00 PM. It knocked the power out not only for the theater, but also for 1400 other customers of P.U.D. # 3. They finally got the power back on at 2:30 in the morning. So unfortunately the theater was unable to open that night due to the lack of power.

What is the theater now? Is it up for sale? What condition is the building in now?

Let’s hope someone can get the theater reopened and in time for a full season too.

Theater is still closed, but does have a video projector installed in addition to the original 35mm film equipment.

I believe the St. Helens Theater closed around 1958 or 1959.

KenLayton commented about Olympic Theatre faces final curtain on Feb 5, 2014 at 9:57 am

The studios could care less about mom-and-pop theaters. Nato even said 30% of these theaters would go out of business because they could not afford the digital video projectors.

There should not be more than 1 trailer anyway.

This is indeed good news to hear of a drive-in theater re-opening! :)

KenLayton commented about Paramount does away with film on Jan 27, 2014 at 12:17 pm

Paramount is still shipping 35mm prints to foreign countries. No studio can afford to lose the lucrative foreign boxoffice revenue. Many foreign countries still use 35mm film so the studios must continue shipping them 35mm prints.

I notice that now when you click on “Updated Theaters” it only shows open theaters. It used to show all updated theaters whether open, closed, or otherwise. Now we’re stuck with just looking at open theaters.

Pictures of the new awning and neon signage are now on their facebook page. The new awning was just installed yesterday and I hear it’s fantastic. It was made by a sign company in Sacramento, California.

KenLayton commented about Twilight Theatre on Nov 21, 2013 at 2:29 pm

A 55 foot wide screen is gonna take a lot of light to light it up, probably around 7,000 watts.

Does anyone know if a new theater ever did get built?

Joe Vogel: The links in your July 5, 2009 comment have now gone bad.
