Online: Seattle Theater History: Another Opening, Another Show

7:00 PM – 8:30 PM

Description

For adults.
Presented by Lawrence Kreisman, Hon. AIA Seattle.

Our theaters offer a very colorful architectural history made even more interesting through the recollections of the people who worked and performed in these theaters and the public who attended shows there.

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.


Sponsored  by the Friends of the Redmond Library and the Redmond Historical Society.
