Was in the area today and made a photo of what exist of this once fine work of architecture. Regretfully little or nothing remains. The building is vacant and the area in which it resides leaves much to be desired.

This building now houses the Hana Buffet.

Here is a 1936 photo of Radner Pratsch, one time owner of the Realart Theater:

Tacoma Public Library’s building index lists Lundberg & Mahon as the architects and R. R. Pratsch as the builder.

It is most likely a coincidence that the Realart Theater has the same name as the Realart Films company. The Realart Theater was a small privately owned theatre in Washington State.

I was wondering the same thing when I read the name.

Was this theatre in any way connected to the Realart Films company that did reissues of the old Universal monster movies in the ‘50’s?
