News About This Theater
- Nov 23, 2011 — John Danz Theater through the years
The John Danz Theatre was a gem of the Danz family empire, also known as Sterling Recreation Organization (SRO). The theatre opened in 1962 and closed in 1990. It became a Good Guys! store in the early-1990’s, and it ended as a Good Guys store in late-2005. It became a furniture store and by 2016 was in use as a church. SRO – which now stands for Sterling Realty Organization – still owns the property and has its offices on the top floor of the building.
The theater is named for John Danz, an early Seattle film exhibitor. His son, Fredric, turned his dad’s moviehouse business into SRO (which owned about 110 theaters on the West Coast in its mid-1980s heyday).
