The Moore and Paramount Theatres have been offering free tours for quite some time, but for one night only The Moore will open its doors to the entire building, including non-public places, for an open house unlike any other.
In conjunction with the Alaska-Yukon-Pacific centennial exposition that has been going on all this year, The Moore has created an event that will celebrate the building’s history through performance, visual and musical artists.
Built in 1907, The Moore Theatre has a very colorful past. Over the last century the old theatre on 2
nd Avenue has housed vaudeville acts, revivals, political meetings, musicians, boxing matches, dance and theatre.
During Moore Inside Outthe public is invited to explore all the nooks and crannies of this fascinating theatre while taking in over 50 artist interpretations of the meaning and possibility The Moore has to offer. Artists will be located all over the place from backstage, through the halls, in the balconies and everywhere else.
Take the artistic tour on Saturday, June 20 from 6pm to 10pm. The event is completely free. The night will end with a parade/procession led by the Balkan brass band, Orkestar Zirkonium, from The Moore Theatre to the Belltown Underground Event Center for the after party. The Belltown Underground is located at 2407 1
st Ave. The event will feature live music by bands from the Pacific Northwest and northern California.
It’s history brought to the modern day. Take part in Moore Inside Out to experience Seattle’s place in history in a whole new way.
