Kelly Stergo of KSR Roofing told me that the project will “beautify the building inside and out.” In addition to the roofing work, the interior and exterior will be painted.
The building will be also be losing its signature tower, a remnant from when it operated as a movie theater from 1937 to 1950.
Acclaimed as one of the Northwest’s finest theaters with its Mirrophonic sound, air conditioning, and a capacity of 750 patrons — “every seat a loge chair” — the new Green Lake Theater was one of several north end neighborhood theaters to open during the Depression, providing momentary escape from the daily drear of economic hard times.
The first feature film shown at “The Show Place of Seattle” was 3 Smart Girls, with Deanna Durbin.
In addition to housing Pacific Color Inc, the building will soon be occupied by La Escuelita Bilingual School.
