Coliseum Theatre, Seattle, WA in 1926

Strange pic of this very elaborate theatre. Marquee looks damaged. It was changed a few times over the years. Became art deco in the 50’s. A rotating Acedemy Award on top of a rounded glass marquee with lots of neon was the last one. Theatre still stands but it is now a clothing store. Much of the original theatre still is in place behind the walls of the store.
I always have wondered if the replacement marquee for the Coliseum is in storage somewhere. Was put up in the early 1950’s I believe. I always thought it a wonderful theatre marquee. Art deco and very dramatic. Almost as nice as the original and went well with the exterior of the beautiful building. Too bad the huge trees hide the building now.
