New closing date for Harvard Exit: Jan. 8, 2015

Update, Jan. 7, 2015, by Lynn Jacobson: Landmark Theatres just announced that the Harvard Exit Theatre on Capitol Hill will close Thursday, Jan. 8, not Jan. 11 as previously stated. The Exit has been sold to developers who plan to turn it into flexible office space, plus a restaurant and bar.

Why the date change? “More time was needed to ready the building for turnover to the new owner, who requires it in a few days,” said Landmark’s Ruth Hayler.

Screenings continue through Thursday night. Currently showing are “The Theory of Everything” (which earned a 3.5-star review from Seattle Times movie critic Moira Macdonald) and “Zero Motivation” (three stars from Tom Keogh). Find showtimes here.

And if you’re starting to feel nostalgic for one of Seattle’s most historic movie theaters, share your memories with Macdonald, who’s working on a look-back story to be published later this week.

Original post, Dec. 29, 2014, by Moira Macdonald: Just heard this morning from a Landmark rep that the final day of business for the Harvard Exit will be Sunday, January 11. It will reopen in 2016 after an extensive remodel will transform it into office space with a restaurant and possible bar. I’m working on a story about Harvard Exit memories, to be published on its final weekend; in the meantime, hurry on over and check out that lobby one more time. Currently “The Theory of Everything” and “Zero Motivation” are playing there, and I’ll update with more programming news as soon as I hear it.
