The Bel-Vue originally had a readerboard out on Northeast 8th, although the theater sat farther back on the property. The letters were stored under the sign. When the theater was playing the 1955 Jennifer Jones weepy “Good Morning Miss Dove” someone broke into the letter storage and put the f-word between “Morning” and “Miss.” Shortly afterward the sign was moved to the theater building!
The only address that I found for this theater is:
Bellevue, WA 98004
The theater opened on March 20, 1946 with 550 seats but the rest of the mall didn’t open until August 20, 1946.
