While not currently used as a movie theater, the Lakewood Theatre is still used by the community, especially each Christmas, when the “Nutcracker” is performed on the theater’s stage.

The theater is currently available for lease.

The Lakewood Colonial Theater needs to be bought by someone who wants to restore it to its “glory” days. I grew up watching double features on Saturday and the
idnight movie on weekends.
The Blue Mouse Theater in the Proctor District was bought and renovated by a small group of investors.
What is the sell price of the Lakewood Theater? Why would the current owner just “sit” on this landmark? Buildings with such a rich history, that can bring back vivid memories, must be made operable again!!!

I am serious, what is the sell price?

There’s fresh talk about the Lakewood Theatre. News Tribune reporter Brent Champaco posted some news on his blog.

Two photo/articles in this weeks Tacoma Weekly newspaper indicate “Groups express new life interest in the Lakewood Theatre”. The second story is of “Mr. Theatre”, the late 53-year old former Executive Director Marcus Walker, who lost his battle with cancer last March. A special birthday candlelight ceremony will be held at 5pm in front of the Lakewood Town Center along with a special street renaming for “Marcus Walker Way”. He will be remembered around Tacoma as “the go-to guy.

We looked into purchasing the theatre 2 years ago and the owner said he wants to sell the whole shopping center; as it’s all parcel. Anyone have $15 million?
