In 1914, the original Green Lake Theater opened at 312 N.E. 72nd Street in Seattle’s Green Lake neighborhood. The theater, one of about 50 in Seattle at the time, operated from 1914 until “talkies” arrived in 1928. Briefly called the Classic Theatre, it typified the early theaters of the day. A single operator projects “photoplays” and silent movies on evenings and on Sunday afternoons.

With the arrival of the talking pictures and the requirement of expensive new projectors and sound equipment, many neighborhood theaters abruptly went out of business for lack of capital. The original Green Lake Theater went out of business in 1928.
