5th Avenue Theater information
Built in 1926 with an opulent Asian motif, the 5th Avenue opened as a vaudeville house; it was later turned into a movie theater and then closed in 1979. An influx of funding and a heritage award saved it in 1980, and now it’s Seattle’s premier theater for Broadway musical revivals. It’s worth going just for a look at the architecture.
Tickets are available by phone or at the theater box office.
