The first exhibit in the Walker Gallery examines Seattle’s relationship with film. Curated by celebrated Seattle critic Robert Horton, this unique exhibition explores both the image of Seattle captured in films, and how the idea of “going to the movies” has changed in the city over the years. Along with film clips and historic artifacts, the exhibit helps visitors truly engage with the historic movie experience through a set of recreated mini-theatres, interactive games and activity kiosks.
Visit the online exhibit for Celluloid Seattle - Seattle Theatres: Then and Now. See historic and contemporary photos of several famous movie theatres in Seattle, some of which no longer exist.
