The Alhambra Theatre opened July 12, 1909, at the southwest corner of 5th Avenue and Pine Street. Its auditorium sat 1,600 people. It started out as a movie and vaudeville theatre, but in 1911, owners C.S. Jensen and John G. von Herberg made it solely a movie theatre. In 1916 it was taken over by the Orpheum Circuit, becoming their 3rd theatre in the city. A year later in 1917 they moved into the Moore Theatre. The Alhambra Theatre was renamed Wilkes Theatre and was back to housing films and vaudeville shows.
It closed in 1922 and the building became Best’s Apparel and later Nordstrom.
