Viewing: Photo | Street View

The Washington Theater opened in 1903. It was built on the same site as the Woods Opera House which burned down on August 29, 1902. In 1916 the Washington Theater was renamed the Washington Strand Theater. That lasted until 1925 when the name was changed back to the Washington Theater.

This theater closed around 1963 and the building was demolished in 1965 to make way for a parking lot.

I don’t think that’s the same building as seen in the 9/25/08 link. Maybe some error in the captioning.

When I was living in Bay City I performed on the stage of the Washington. Also, I took photographs of the Washington Follies learning to be a photographer. If I can figure out how to do it I will post the pictures.

I had the lucky experience as a kid to see movies at the Washington! Its interior featured a stage, side opera boxes and 2 rear Balconies! It was demolished in 1965.
