Coliseum Twin Theater

The Coliseum Theater opened in the mid-1930’s on downtown Sitka’s Lincoln Street. The Coliseum Theater was twinned in March 1982.

In 2002, the Coliseum Twin Theater was demolished and replaced by an Alaska Pacific Bank building. Its' seats, projectors, and sound system were removed prior to demolition and are now in a new two-screen Coliseum Theatre that opened in 2003 at a new location at 331 Lincoln Street (it has its own page on Cinema Treasures).

My 1967 FDY shows the Coliseum as operated by the Gross Circuit, headquartered in Juneau. President and GM was Zelma Gross. Other Alaska theaters in the circuit at the time were the Coliseum in Haines, the Coliseum in Ketchikan, the 20th Century in Juneau, the Coliseum in Petersburg and the Coliseum in Skagway.
