The Historic Everett Theater in downtown Everett is up for sale and according to the listing agent it is getting some serious looks.

“We have had a good amount of interest on the theater so far,” said Steve Pelluer, a Vice President at Colliers International in Bellevue which has the listing. “The owners have done a great job restoring the property to create a dynamic downtown hub for large gatherings.”

Built in 1901 it originally was the Everett Opera House. A fire destroyed much of the structure in 1923. The Theater was rebuilt and reopened in summer of 1924. It’s the last remaining movie house in downtown Everett and survived many ups and downs over the years. To this day they still show classic movies as part of their programming.

In 2014 members of the Shriner family purchased the theater and began renovations. The first act they brought in was Little River Band and since then have brought dozens of national acts and hundreds of local and regional productions, films and activities to offer a wide variety of entertainment. The Historic Everett Theatre Preservation Society is a non-profit that has been dedicated to drawing acts and patrons to the downtown theater and has worked with the Shriners to keep the Historic Everett Theater alive.
