Theater marquee

Built in 1983 by Sterling Recreation Organization (SRO) in the suburbs of South Tacoma. The theater had 5 screens; 2 large auditoriums held 450 seats with slight curved screens when it opened on December 16, 1983.

Auditorium 1 had at the time the best sound system in the city and included 70mm capabilities. This was pre-digital, but when Loews took over they never tried to keep up with the changing state of the art sound systems. It did install a seldom working DTS unit in the final few years.

It was closed in July of 2002 just a few weeks after Loews closed down the Tacoma Mall theater a few miles away.
