Inspired by Versailles, this opulent theater was constructed in 1918. Fully restored in 1983, the 1,169-seat theater showcases events ranging from national touring acts to the Tacoma Philharmonic. A surprising number of local acts appear here as well, including live music, film festivals and avant-garde theater. Superb acoustics and reasonable ticket prices make this a theater well worth visiting. Backstage tours include the neighboring Rialto Theater. This theater is part of the Broadway Center For the Performing Arts.
