The 1914-1915 American Motion Picture Directory lists the Palm Theatre at Ballard (still an independent city at that time, so not part of Seattle’s listings) at 5346 Ballard Avenue. It lists a house called the Tivoli at the same address. I suspect that the double listing resulted from a name change around the time the directory was being compiled, late 1913 or early 1914.

A page about Seattle’s early theaters at Historylink says that three movie houses in Ballard, the Ballard, Tivoli and Crystal, were all in operation by 1910. It also says that of these only the Ballard Theatre survived the WWI period, so the Tivoli/Palm must have closed before the end of 1918. The Ballard is certainly the only one of the three that is listed in the 1926 FDY.
