Yes was a very beautiful and dramatic street at one time and espcially at night. The Fox had the most dramatic marquee. Very art deco.

Nice detail to the building. Balcony and roof line is attractive. Wonder what the interior was like?

Great marquee. What a waste to tear this theatre down and let it go into ruins. Whats new?

I saw that film too. Lots of fun. Must have been great on the big screen. Quite the satire on silly action pics.

One of the most beautiful snack counters. Very artistic!

paulnelson commented about Coliseum Theatre, Seattle WA in January 1916 on Feb 21, 2015 at 3:20 am

Wonderful ceiling and wall design. Roman heads done in plaster on the front of the balcony. Well designed up close balcony in relation to proscenium and movie screen. Cinemascope installed in the 1950’s I believe. A very large screen I recall. I saw many films here into the 1980’s. First run films always until it was closed.

Like something out of a fantasy castle. Such a tragedy it was demolished.

Nice exterior and marquee. Looks very elegant and stylish. Much more than the present average new theatre or multiplex.

Vintage art deco marquee. A very haunted looking pic. Handsome building still however.

Great art deco lighting still being used to this day. Theatre is as popular today as in the 20’s.

Great vintage theatre and almost in the original condition. Original curtain had to be removed for cinemascope years ago. I have seen many a film here since the 1950’s and continue seeing them in 2015. Digital now and one of the longest runs in the country.
