About the Event
Lawrence Kreisman has us look at the remnants of a theater industry that was remarkable, albeit short-lived. For its youth and size, Seattle had a broad ranging reputation in entertainment. In fact, in 1909, it was reputed to be second only to New York in the number and variety of live offerings. Only a small number of Seattle's many legitimate stage houses, vaudeville and motion picture palaces are still intact. This makes those that survive all the more important in keeping alive the social importance that theater had to this community.
