News About This Theater
- Jun 25, 2007 — 7th Street Theatre turns over new leaf
Built in 1928, the 7th Street Theatre remains an Spanish-inspired Atmospheric style treasure. The theatre was designed by architect Edwin St. John Griffith in association with Olaf T. Taylor. It was equipped with a 2 manual 4 ranks Wurlitzer organ.
The theatre features murals on the ceiling of lobby, twinkling lights in the ceiling of the auditorium, and a beautiful tiled fountain near the restrooms. Overall, the theatre is very similar to the Arlington Theatre in Santa Barbara, California.
The 7th Street Theatre was placed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1987 and is now a live concert venue.

Glad to see that the cieling is getting restores. This has been the most visible problem area for the theatre. When finished the theatre should look GREAT!
It’s also nice to see a new sidewalk being installed along the whole block.
The photo’s of the work on the auditorium look great! I can not stress how pleased I am that this is getting done. Hoquiam and Wa. State are getting a very rare gem. The 7th st will be around for another 80 years to entertain and captivate all who enter with her beauty.
Now officially restored with a new ceiling and twinkling lights. Great newspaper story dated January 24, 2009:
The photo’s look great! Hooray for the 7th st. it has been a long road to get this far.
I see that the theater finally got new carpet after 40 years. It will be nice to not have the duct tape holding down the seams. I do hope the theater saved the little bit of original carpet from the balcony for archival perposes. But all in all it now looks way batter.
Yes the ceiling and carpeting is beautiful. The roof design and wall designs on the exterior of this theatre is handsome too.
