Built in 1910, the Columbia City Theater was then a vaudeville house. Now a dinner theater (food is available at the attached bar or next door at Tutta Bella, and can be brought into the theater), the venue hosts cabarets, benefits, karaoke, live music, and puppet operas.
The glove factory down the street, built in 1921, is now the
Ark Masonic Lodge fabulous Columbia City Theater.* The 1891 Town Hall is now a social service organization for kids. Columbia Branch of the Seattle Public Library.* The Columbia Hotel is now the home of Lottie’s Lounge. The butcher shop is, well, still a butcher shop. Check out the slideshow at History Link, but be warned, things have changed since it was made.*
Neighborhood information is chronicled in Captain Columbia City’s blog.
