The Pantages Theatre originally opened pre-1909. It was re-modeled by noted architect B. Marcus Priteca and re-opened on June 30, 1918 with 1,300 seats. In 1930 it was renamed Orpheum Theatre and was operating as a movie theatre from 1932. In 1950, the seating capacity had been slightly reduced to 1,253.

The Orpheum Theatre was demolished in 1958.

Various performers were appearing at the Pantages in Spokane as early as October, 1907, as listed in the 1907-08 edition of Henry’s Official Western Theatrical Guide.

A splendid night shot of the Pantages Theatre illustrates this article about vaudeville in Spokane, published by the Spokesman-Review in 2005.
