Egyptian Theatre

Egyption Theater

801 E Pine Street, Seattle, WA, 98122

One screen. Built in 1915. The Egyptian Theatre is located on Capitol Hill near Downtown Seattle and features a wide array of independent film, foreign language cinema, documentaries and restored classics. It was originally built as a large Masonic Temple, with offices, a main auditorium, and a smaller auditorium. In the 1970s, the Masons used the large auditorium as a wrestling arena to earn extra money. In the early 1980s it became the home of the Seattle International Film Festival, at which point the founders of the Festival moved in and gave the theatre its current Egyptian décor. The Egyptian continues to host SIFF, the largest film festival in North America. The theatre is owned by Seattle Central College. Sound Systems: Dolby Digital - Dolby SR - Dolby Stereo
