Celluloid Seattle Online

Curated by celebrated Seattle film critic Robert Horton, Celluloid Seattle: A City at the Movies explored both the image of Seattle captured in films, and how the idea of “going to the movies” has changed in this city over the years. Along with film clips and historic artifacts, the exhibit helped visitors truly engage with the historic movie experience through a set of recreated mini-theatres, interactive games, and activity kiosks. 

Seattle Theatres Then and Now

As part of Celluloid Seattle, MOHAI teamed up with photographer Jean Sherrard to explore Seattle's historic neighborhood theatres. Using  images from MOHAI's historic photo archive as a guide, Sherrard documented how some of Seattle's most beloved entertainment hubs have changed (or not) over the years.
