Built in 1936 for local businessman “Cap” Lathrop, who built much of downtown Fairbanks, the Lacey Street Theater continued to operate for over four decades. It was designed in Streamline Moderne style by B. Marcus Priteca, and could seat over 1100 in its auditorium.

It now is home to the Fairbanks Ice Museum and also Ice Alaska and Freeze Frame.

The proprietor of the Lacey Street Theatre (now the Ice Museum) acquired the original Kimball(?) theater pipe organ from the Empress Theater (now converted to shops) down the street, and has it in storage upstairs at the Ice Museum.

What a place to have a movie theatre or whatever—right next door to a college campus. Too bad that the Lacey Street Theatre is no longer at least USED as a theatre on occasion.
