News About This Theater
- May 23, 2012 — Celebrating the Original STAR WARS on its 35th Anniversary
Built as a vaudeville theater and opening on January 7, 1917 by Alexander Pantages. The Pantages Theater had 1,303 seats. Following a complete remodel by architectural firm Carlson, Eley & Grevstad, it was reopened as a movie theater, named Roxy Theater on September 30, 1932, screening Jack Holt in “This Sporting Age” & Andy Clyde in “The Giddy Age”. After years as a first run movie house (under the moniker of the Roxy Theater), the theater closed.
In 1978, the former Pantages Theater underwent renovation and finally reopened in 1983 for stage shows and concerts. Today, the Pantages Theater is again one of the best places in the area for live events.
