Opened November 10, 1913 as the Tivoli Theatre, it was a burlesque theatre for many years and artists such as Sophie Tucker and Belle Baker appeared on the stage. It then housed a childrens' circus theatre.
By 1941 it was a movie theatre known as the Rivoli Theatre and it continued in this use until at least 1950. Later it became a legit stage theatre known as the Old Seattle Theatre and when this folded it reverted to the name Rivoli Theatre again, this time showing adult porn movies. It was demolished in 1970.
