The Apollo Theatre opened on June 29, 1914. Eight years later, it re-opened on June 29, 1922 as the Blue Mouse Theatre, operated by theatre chain founder John Hamrick. The Blue Mouse Theater was the first theatre in Tacoma to show “talkies” running Al Jolson in “The Jazz Singer” in January, 1928.
Its sister theatre, the Blue Mouse “Junior” opened on Proctor Street in 1923 (it has its own page on Cinema Treasures). In 1960, the Blue Mouse Theatre was demolished to make way for a new street escalator.
