This theater opened as the Mack Theatre in November 1922. The architect was George B. Purvis. It was most likely named after it’s builder and first manager, Mack J. Davis. By 1949, the name had been changed to the Olympian. The site is currently a parking lot below street level.

All that remains of the Olympian Theatre is part of the wall the theater building shared with the building to the south.

Here is an article from the Port Angeles Evening News on May 6, 1969. The photos were too dark to reproduce here.
