Lots of art deco in this pic. Glass blocks maybe light up? Handsome lobby.

Great box office design and doors and tile floor. Looks like a good place to sit and have a coffee.

I saw many films at The Princess Theatre. I believe it had a lovely curtain that was used to open the film. The original lighting is still in use and wall structural columns. The original marquee is long gone and replaced by a very small one and plain signage. I always thought that the auditorium cried out for murals on the walls and nicer ceiling decoration and lighting. A theatre this vintage still in use and now digital is a treasure for the Pacific Northwest. Cheers!

Should have left the box office in place. Skouras design box offices had a lot of style in my opinion. This floor is great though. Port hole doors are fun too. Great lobby.

Much like the vintage and demolished Oriental Theatre in Portland Oregon. Check it out.
