Built in 1907, The Moore is the oldest operating theatre in Seattle and as much a part of Seattle's history as the Denny Regrade, salmon runs and Starbucks. History has been made at The Moore and the future is about to get brighter.
THE MOORE CAPITAL CAMPAIGN: FOREVER MOORE
Since July this year, the theatre has been closed and work has been underway to give the beloved Moore Theatre a much-needed facelift. On September 27, 2013, we are swinging open the doors to welcome you into a renewed space celebrating with American music legend, Mavis Staples!
The show will go on and we are re-opening as promised, however, due to circumstances beyond our control, the new seats have not yet arrived. In the interim, the theatre has been outfitted with temporary seating that is much more comfortable than what was there before. The seats are bigger, rows are wider and overall comfort has been enhanced.
All of the additional work has been completed and what has emerged is an incredibly beautiful interior that has been hidden for many years. Repaired plaster, fresh paint, new carpet and enhanced heating have all come together to showcase the beauty of Seattle’s oldest operating theatre. It’s really quite impressive!
As updates and projected dates for seat arrival and installation become available, we will keep this page up to date for you.
This much-needed facelift is only possible with generous support from donors like you.
