The address 2410 East Lynn Street is actually the back wall of the theater’s auditorium. The theater’s entrance was through that splendid Gothic arch at 2308 24th Avenue East.

This item from the September 13, 1924, issue of Exhibitor’s Trade Review is probably about the Montlake Theatre:

“W. W. Armstrong, is building a house at 24th Avenue and East Lynn Street, Seattle. It is planned to seat 580 people. Construction will begin shortly. George Purvis of Seattle is architect.”
George B. Purvis also designed the Columbia Theatre in Longview and the Mack Theatre in Port Angeles, Washington.

At least that address gets you in the neighborhood when you map it out. I would agree with that.

But not 2410 24th Avenue East, which is further down the road.

So what is the correct address of the theater?

I question the 2410 address. Salon Blast next door is at 2306 24th. If you put 2310 in Google maps, it takes you to the correct location.
