Seattle Theatre, c.1929
CLOSE-UP of SEATTLE MARQUEE - this canopy did not last too long on the facade. It was subsequently altered and the name was changed to Paramount. The theatre seated 3,049 making it the largest motion picture palace west of Chicago until Fox opened his fabulous San Francisco Market Street house the following year. The theatre eventually was taken over by a local chain, finally closed as a movie house, and was converted to rock concerts and other live shows.
