These 9 Theaters In Washington Will Give You An Unforgettable Viewing Experience
How do you spend your winters in Washington? If you’re not into snow sports and you can’t stand the cold, you’re probably inclined to stay inside. Why not get cozy in one of our unique theaters? Whether you’re more in the mood for a movie or a theater performance, you’re sure to enjoy these beautiful venues.
1. The Capitol Theatre, Yakima
Yakima's Capitol Theatre has been open since 1920, though a fire destroyed most of the original building in 1975. Not only is it a wonderful place to see the symphony, a concert or a play, but it's also rumored to be haunted (the ghost is harmless).
2. The Big Picture, Seattle
The Big Picture is a movie theater for guests 21 and older, but it's also so much more. It's a gathering spot with a full bar, popcorn served in champagne buckets and space available for private parties.
3. Martin Woldson Theater at The Fox, Spokane
The Fox Theater made its debut in Spokane in 1931, a time of transition between silent movies and the "talkies." The Theater featured the most advanced movie technology of its time and was the first air-conditioned building in Spokane. The newly renovated art deco Martin Woldson Theater at The Fox opened its doors in November 2007.
4. Ruby Theatre, Chelan
The historic Ruby Theatre first opened its doors in 1913. With the exception of 1972-1974, it's been showing movies the entire time, and it's one of the oldest theaters in the state.
5. The Rosyln Theatre, Roslyn
The Roslyn claims to be the world's best little theatre that serves the world's best popcorn with butter. It's a historic, charming venue, but bring cash or checks if you see a movie here - they don't take cards.
6. Central Cinema, Seattle
Central Cinema is the most fun theater in Seattle (and possibly the state). The dinner theater comes with table service, the menu is full of tasty pizza and delicious small bites, and they regularly host old-fashioned sing-alongs and cartoon happy hours.
7. Bing Crosby Theater, Spokane
Originally known as the Clemmer Theater, this venue regularly hosted Bing Crosby in 1925. It earned a spot on the National Register of Historic Places in 1988.
8. Cinebarre, Mountlake Terrace
Cinebarre is a favorite for everyone in the Seattle area. They have an array of cocktails available for guests 21 and over, and milkshakes and food for everyone.
9. The Kiggins Theatre, Vancouver
Vancouver's best vintage theatre is a local favorite, showing well-loved classic movies and serving old-fashioned candy and treats.
