This was the first Coliseum Theatre to be built in Ketchikan and it opened in early-1924. It was designed by Seattle, WA based architect R.H. Rowe and a feature of the 1,000-seat auditorium was the mezannine level which was accessed by ramps. It was equipped with a Kimball 2 manual 7 ranks organ. By 1943 the seating capacity had been reduced to 700. In 1929 it was equipped with Vitaphone and Movietone sound systems. The Coliseum Theatre was destroyed by fire on May 21, 1956.
A new Coliseum Theatre was built on the site which opened in 1957 (it has its own page on Cinema Treasures).
