The Park Theatre was located in Tacoma’s McKinley Hill neighborhood. It opened in the early-1920’s. A Wicks-built Robert Morton theater pipe organ was installed in 1923.

I can find no record of its closing date.

It was still listed as operating in the Film Daily Yearbook, 1950 edition.

In 1953, the organ was moved to Sacred Heart Catholic Church in Tacoma. In 1956 it was removed from the church, but it’s current disposition is unknown.

This is a photo of the Park Theater. The Tacoma Public Library claims the Park Theater was a vaudeville theater that was converted to a movie theater in 1922.

I think this building still exists. If you look up the address in Google Maps and go to the “street view”, there is a building with similar dimensions, placement, and trim around the top. However the facade has been heavily modified. I don’t know what the building’s present function is.

Drove past the building used to be the Park Theatre yesterday, it seems to be a bingo hall among other things. I believe it operates under the name of “Parkway Hall” or something similar.
