Sunset Theatre

Opened in 1919 as a movie theatre, built for E.W. Sandel, with the name Dream Theatre. Operated under that name until 1923, when it was acquired by William Cocherane, who changed its name to Sunset Theatre. The theatre never was designed for sound and closed as such on January 1930. In 1939, the building was remodeled to house the Town Hall and Fire Station. This status lasted until 1956 when the Lumbers and Sawmill Workers Union, Local 1845, purchased the building for its Union Hall.

This item from the June 27, 1919 issue of Pacific Builder and Engineer is most likely about the Dream Theatre:

“Snoqualmie, Wn-Archt E. W. Houghton, Seattle, is planning a conc. moving picture theatre for this pl. same to be 80x32 ft with timbered truss rf. Modern htg and vent plant will be installed.”
The dimensions of the building in street and satellite views do look to be about 32x80.
