|Building Notes||Architect and designer B. Marcus Priteca arrived in Seattle in 1909. From 1910 to 1929, he worked exclusively for the Pantages theater circuit. Priteca designed more than 150 theaters in all. The Pantages Theater served as a vaudeville house from 1918 to 1926 during which it hosted a variety of shows including Mae West, the Marx Brothers, Charlie Chaplin and W.C. Fields. It was converted to a movie theater in 1932 and eventually was restored in 1983 as part of the Boradway Center for Performing Arts. |
