Admiral Theater reopens Oct. 16 but expect changes
The Admiral Theater in its namesake district has been through many changes in its long history but perhaps none more challenging than the pandemic. It dates back to nearly the time of the last one in 1919 when it was called the Portola Theater. Now after having been closed to the public since shortly after the pandemic began, they are set to open, along with their sister theater in the University District the Varsity.
Here's their announcement:
Historic Admiral and Varsity Theatres are excited to have you back! We're opening next Friday, October 16!
Please wear a mask while in the auditorium and until you're seated at a safe distance from other patrons. You may remove your mask to eat concessions while in your seat.
For all info on our mask requirements, 25% capacity and what we're doing for Covid, please read here.
Still not ready to return to the theater? We will continue to have a great offering of virtual cinema.
Governor Jay Inslee relaxed a variety of regulations last week including theaters.
