Egyptian Theater to close its doors

Sad news this morning for those who love the Egyptian: The former Masonic Temple on Capitol Hill, operated as a moviehouse by the Landmark chain since 1989, will reportedly close its doors at the end of the month. The Capitol Hill Seattle Blog reported this morning that Seattle Central Community College (the building in which the Egyptian resides is owned by the Seattle Community College system) confirmed that Landmark is not renewing its lease for the theater, and will cease operations there by the end of June. More details are on the way; stay tuned.

2:15 p.m  update:  More details here. The theater’s last show will be June 27. No word on what SCCC will do with the building, but they will be looking for a new tenant. Alamo Drafthouse, are you listening?
