Thanks to Sharon Balin, the widow of Al Balin, for donating the original inventory listing. The list belonged to Al when he managed the 7th Street Theatre in the 1970s era. We plan to digitize all pages, but here’s a shot of page 1. All passed away earlier this year.
Here’s a photo found in a promotional book of Grays Harbor that was printed between 1950 and 1955. This women’s clothing store was in the corner tenant space of the theatre.

Our first batch of on-site engraving took place on April 24th. Bricks are still available, until they are all engraved. If you’re interested in an engraved brick, a form and pricing is available here.
Two of our volunteers, Bob Martin and Betsy Seidel, have been actively involved in helping us with the organ project. Several months ago they were informed that a gentleman from Seattle had passed away and the executor of his estate was looking for a home for his pipe organ. With the help of the Puget Sound Theatre Organ Society, we were able to procure this organ, which is in excellent condition. It is a Wurlitzer pipe organ with a “toy box” and we plan to use it for parts when we are able to raise the funds to install the organ. It is being stored in the LaVogue Building in Hoquiam for now, as the original organ parts are already taking up most of the space under the seats at theatre.
Well, the 7th Street Theatre made it on the list: SUSAN JOHNSON’S FAVORITE HISTORIC THEATERS IN WASHINGTON.
Here’s a teaser that was shot last year about this time when we showed National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation in conjunction with Ho Ho Hoquiam. Featuring the Lucemann as Cousin Eddie. We have a lot of fun this time of year.
We found someone who will engrave the installed bricks onsite. There are about 250 bricks that can be engraved. This is a great gift idea! Here’s the order form:
