Two dramatic deco structures. Aqua or teal paint on theatre is perfect for original time period.
The most beautiful and elaborate theatre in Seattle. Still wowing the city every day!
This is what I remember of this theatre. 2nd run films. 3 features often. Horror, Science Fiction and later Porno for years. Now a restored auditorium and live entertainment. Cheers to the Embassy. Who would have thought it would have come back from the dead.
A dramatic art moderne/art deco masterpiece. Tragedy it is gone. What a waste!
What a fun and dramatic marquee. Doors are stylish too.
Must have been handsome at one time. Now a confusing mix of styles and colors. Should be restored.
Great marquee and neon.
Curtain is handsome and faux balconys and entire proscenium. Beautiful theatre.
This elaborate and dramatic theatre should be saved and promoted. Historic work of cinematic design.
Great this lovely theatre has been restored from the sad modern coverup of the past.
Interesting photo. Is the figure on the right a statue?
French design elements? Ceiling light designs are fantastic. Whole theate should be restored. Timeless historic value for Chicago and the world.
Ceiling is elaborate detail and wall designs too. Balcony details are handsome too.
Great marquee and window grids above. Art Deco touches.
Wow what a dramatic proscenium and lighting. The best!
Handsome marquee and box office. Like the rounded corners and lighting and rough stone.
What a handsome building. Lighting and marquee and stone and hardware holding the marquee up is beautiful. Sort of Frank Lloyd Wright feeling to it.
How nice this lovely old theatre is still going strong. Marquee is handsome and art deco trim above doors and box office is great. Class act.
Handsome spanish inspired restored and open theatre. Atmospheric interior design with stars in the sky I am told. Lovely.
Yes theatres this large and old operate around the country still. Examples-The Paramount and the 5th Avenue and Moore and Neptune. All in Seattle. All are elaborate and old and used for live entertainment successfully.
Great neon and details on this building is interesting.
What a great dome this theatre had and the interior had the biggest curved screen in town. This building had style and was unique in the same way that Mannings/Dennys was in Ballard. Sadly they are both gone now.
I remember the dramatic striped waterfall curtain covering the huge ultra widescreen. It was alternating pale tan and crimson and went up in a vertical manner. What a dramatic theatre. It made even bad movies likable or somewhat likable. Nothing like it anymore.
Fantastic interior. Assyrian or a combination of near eastern styles. One of the best interior design creations for a theatre.
Dramatic and elaborate proscenium but a small screen. Must be before cinemascope.
