Broadway Market Cinemas

Originally called the Capitol Hill Cinemas when it opened in the Broadway Market shopping complex in 1988, the name aimed to avoid confusion with the Broadway Theater down the street (which later closed).
The Broadway Market was a plain but comfortable fourplex with two auditoriums in the 350-seat range and two with fewer than 100. The highlight was a stylized mural of the Seattle citycape painted wall to wall in the lobby behind the snack bar.
The theater programmed arthouse and offbeat fare.
In 2000, national indie chain Landmark/Seven Gables Corporation reacquired the Broadway Market Cinemas from bankrupt Silver Cinema. In 1996, Silver bought out Landmark.
The theater lost its lease to Gold’s Gym, and the 14-year-old Broadway Market closed on April 21, 2002. Appropriately, free showings of “The Last Picture Show” were shown.
