I’ve seen a few references to an episode of a NPR radio show being broadcast from the Gold Pan Theatre in 1998, but I haven’t found the house mentioned in theater industry trade journals. The 1914-1915 American Motion Picture Directory lists a Nugget Theatre, Broadway and Third Street, as the only movie house in Skagway, and the January 13, 1945 Showmen’s Trade Review mentions a house in Skagway called the Broadway Theatre, apparently just closed for the winter, and except for a couple of mentions of the Coliseum, that’s it for Skagway in the trade journals. It’s a tiny little town that these days appears to live mostly on the tourist industry.
