History // Directions // Press & Media

Built in 1928, Hoquiam’s 7th Street Theatre is one of the few remaining atmospheric-style theatres on the West Coast.  The theatre’s unique interior, adopted from the works of John Eberson, transforms the interior into a simulated open-air playhouse with a painted “sky” ceiling complete with clouds and twinkling stars. The 7th Street Theatre is a beautiful and unique venue. It was placed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1987.  In 2008 the 7th Street Theatre was the first building in the city of Hoquiam to be placed on the newly formed Hoquiam Register of Historic Places.  More information about the history and restoration can be found on our history page.

Today, the 7th Street Theatre is undergoing constant work under the guidance of the 7th Street Theatre Association, a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization which owns and operates the theatre. The venue hosts events all year long, and regularly features classic movies on certain weekends each year.
