Constructed beginning 1918 by Alexander Pantages, with assistance from Klondike Kate. Was designed to mimic the palace at Versailles. If there's a class act coming to Tacoma, it will be here. Lovely vintage Theatre is part of the Broadway Center for Performing Arts.

Love this venue. It is like stepping back in time. To a time when the theater was an experience. The staff is delightful, and every care is taken to make sure that you have an exceptional experience.

The restored Pantages is a gem; the nicest of our South Sound vintage theaters. Acoustics are fine, seating is logical and the terra cotta still impresses. Reputed to be haunted by 1 or 2 friendly spirits.
