The Neptune Theatre closed as a single-screen movie house in January 2011 and is now operated by Seattle Theatre Group® (STG), the non-profit operators of the historic Paramount and Moore Theatres.

STG has reconfigured the Neptune Theatre to increase options for community engagement in the arts. Our mission is to present diverse performing arts while preserving this historic cultural icon.

On November 14th, the City of Seattle's Landmark Preservation Board voted to designate the Neptune Theatre building as a city landmark. We now proudly operate three City of Seattle Historic Landmarks!
