Cornerspotter: The Colonial Theatre Putting On a Show in 1948

New, 1 comment

See if you can figure out where in Seattle the Colonial used to call home

Cornerspotter is the Curbed Seattle feature in which we show you a historical photo taken somewhere in the city and you identify the location. Impress fellow Curbed readers with your knowledge by leaving guesses in the comments or send them to our tipline: seattle@curbed.com. We'll post the answer on Friday. And hey: no cheating!

The Colonial Theatre was built in 1914 and made it as far as te 1960's before it was replaced. Now you'll find a bunch of offices upstairs and tons of retail spaces on the ground level. Not only is it right across the street from one of Seattle's most oft-used public spaces but you can spot one of Seattle's most popular shopping destinations over there on the right. So, any idea where the Colonial Theatre used to be located?
