About Moore Theatre

Built in 1907, the Moore Theatre is the oldest remaining theater in Seattle. Today, operated by Seattle Theatre Group, the landmark theater serves as a venue for concerts and touring theater productions. The first building on the regraded Second Avenue, the Moore created a general shift away from Pioneer Square as the central business district while firmly establishing Second Avenue as the “film/theatre district” for Seattle. In its early years, the venue was host to the famous Orpheum vaudeville circuit, and during the 1930s it presented many of the most distinguished European and American singers, musicians, and dancers. The theater was remodeled in 1955, and in 1974 the Moore Theatre was placed on the National Register of Historic Places. The 1970s, however, saw the theater operated for a time as a movie house. The theater returned to hosting live events, and, after additional renovations and cleanings, new and larger seats were installed, and the box seating was removed, reducing the capacity to 1,419 seats. In the last twenty years the Moore has defined itself as a venue for both local community events, such as lectures, beauty pageants, and local dance or musical groups, and as a home for more “alternative” touring musicians and theatre. Virtually every musical genre, from the most hard-core punk to flashy funk, has had a place on the Moore stage in recent years.
