King Cat revitalized

SEATTLE, WA — The King Cat Theatre that has had many uses over the years is being brought back again as a venue for a variety of activities.

Now, the old theater is revived — but the King Cat in 2008 is encompassing a lot of its past variety, too. As an all-purpose venue, it’s fit for business meetings, concerts, film festivals and also available for rent.

“I want it to be a place to gather for all sorts of entertainment for Seattle,” said new owner Arif Amaani. “Everybody will have something to see.”

I wish they would give this theatre back its original name: “The King”. My 2 times at the king were quite diverse: 1987 for my 17th birthday my parents took me to see “Lethal Weapon” there (when it was operated by GCC). Later, after college, I was privileged to see Jeff Buckley play there before his untimely death.

Wow. Jeff Buckley at the King. It was a special theatre in many ways, I saw The Great Gatsby there in the 80’S I think it was. The whole area around what was the UA 150 and King and great Music Hall and Orpheum has lost it’s sense of style. A great city needs to hold on to some sense of it’s past also. Look at Rome and Paris. Now there is a quality of greatness and also honor for their past glory.
