The Tacoma Theatre is still located on the corner of Tacoma and East Washington Streets. The building houses a fine resturant and if you look closely when you are there you can see it was once a movie theatre. Close to the entrance of the dining area you can see a window that coould have been used for ticket sales. In the dining area if you look up you will see the ventalation for the projection room and where the balcony was once located. The first time I was ever in the resturant I thought it had at one time been a movie theatre.

This web page about the Ritz Theatre, says that its architect, George V. Bedell, also designed the Tacoma Theatre.

The Tacoma Theatre opened in 1913. The November 29 issue of The Moving Picture World had this item:

“The Tacoma Amusement Company, which recently opened a beautiful new $15,000 motion picture theater at East Washington street and Tacoma avenue, has announced an increase in its capital stock from $15,000 to $25,000.”
