Former projectionist photos




Here are some great photos we received from Ross Munro, who worked in the theatre in the early 1980s. The photos were taken in 1980, and he is in one of the pictures. He started out at the D&R, and then came to the 7th Street. One of these projectors is in the lobby — they are the original E7 carbon arc projectors. Ross was projectionist and also theatre manager during this time. Ross, married with three beautiful kids, lives in North Carolina and is a Master Chief (SEAL) and has been in the Navy for 26 years. Thank you Ross!

Bike winner!

Here’s 11-year-old Angelique, who won the bike Saturday night at our raffle. This awesome bike was refurbished by Stafford Creek Correctional Industries, who donated this along with two hand-made birdhouses and a crocheted afghan for our raffle. Congratulations Angelique!

Cool Hand Luke movie night

Things have been pretty crazy here at the 7th Street Theatre, and I decided we needed to have something new on our blog. This is a shot I took last night while Cool Hand Luke was playing. It’s a nice thing to see this activity taking place again around downtown Hoquiam. There have been events every week since we reopened on January 25th after being closed for four months for renovations.

Some Like it Hot


Some Like it Hot, screened on Valentine’s Day weekend this year, had a special opportunity to get your picture taken with Marilyn. The theatre volunteers are proud that our own Jamie is a Marilyn look-alike, and here she is with her sweetie, Joe (right).
The photo on the left shows faithful popcorn fans waiting for that perfect popcorn with REAL butter that can only be found at the 7th Street Theatre in Hoquiam.

Reopening celebration

On January 25, 2009, our reopening celebration brought in over 500 people to see all the newly restored seats, backstage rigging and the curtains and to hear the Aberdeen Elks National Band and Dukes of Swing perform for this event. Check out our photo album. (Thanks to Sativa Miller for the great shots!)

Curtains, the beginning of the end


The rigging project is almost done! Just yesterday the “grand valance” and drapes were hung. This photo was taken before the drapes were installed, but I just needed to share this picture. We chose a drape design as close to the originals as possible. Having only black and white photos put a damper on the color scheme, but we are extremely pleased with the dark blue fabric. If you’d like to see what the original drapes looked like, check out the Jones Photo Historical Collection site and search for photo number 23140. Bet you can’t wait to see these in real life.
