According to a person posting as “Good_Citizen” in the comments section of the Seattle Times article “Explore Seattle’s Romantic – and Vanishing – Historic Moviehouses”, the University Theater was an art cinema that opened in April of 1971. During renovation it was discovered the location had been the New Home Theatre showing silent movies from 1914-1924. The University Theater added a second screen some years into its operation on the second floor behind the projection booth. The University Theater closed in 1986 after declining attendance due to the advent of VHS cassettes.
The building still exists and has been the home of the Jet City Improv troupe since 2003.
