The Crest Theatre was built in 1949. It was located in the Shoreline district of Seattle, which since 1995 has been incorporated into a city. It was renovated by Seven Gables Theatre in Spring of 1979 and equipped with widescreen capabilities. It was one of the first theaters in the country to run “Close Encounters of the Third Kind” in 70mm, and was renamed Crest 70.
The storefronts were converted into a small cinema in 1979, and in 1980 the main auditorium was triplexed.
The theater offered bargain nights in the late-1980’s, and they became so successful that the owners decided to keep running “discount programming”.
Tickets are $3. It’s very much a neighborhood theater. By June 2023 it was screening first run movies.
