Back in 1975 I worked as a young(ish) architect in Priteca’s office, here in Seattle. Benny Priteca was a specialist in theater architecture, and I saw many of his tracings for elaborate terracotta facing tiles and parapet caps. Years later, now an acoustical consultant, I was part of the design team for the 2004 renovation. Let me know— if you are a ‘local’— just how well the acoustics are working out.
And thanks to all who have posted photos.
Thanks all for posting these photos and historical details.
I remember the Admiral from 1952, when I was in 1st grade, and would look out at night from a second floor window at my grandma’s house, mesmerized by the deco neon lights of the theater.
I would love it if anyone has night photos showing the neon “mast”… the P-I photo and other marquee photos do not reveal its true captivating character.
