The Columbia City Theater's History
"The Columbia City Theater boasts one of the most beautiful settings for live music and performance in Seattle. The theater reopened on June 25th, 2010 to rave reviews and was featured in Seattle Weekly's "Best of Seattle" list after being open for less than two months. It has since been dubbed "The city's finest sounding room," by SPIN Magazine.
The Columbia City Theater was built in 1917 and is the oldest vaudeville theater in the state of Washington. Having played a major role in the Seattle Jazz boom in the 40s, the theater played host to the likes of Duke Ellington, Ella Fitzgerald, and Fats Waller. During the 50s the theater served as a neighborhood movie theater (pictured above), where neighborhood residents have recalled attending Saturday morning movies for kids such as Flash Gordon and the Our Gang series. During the 60s, the theater began hosting live events once more and is one of the first venues to host the legendary Jimi Hendrix.
During the early 80s, the theater was a home to much of the DIY punk movement and the touring networks that were created to support it. It has since been an art commune, and a place that specifically hosted raves in more recent years under the name "The Lish House".
We're excited to welcome Sharon Lacey!
