Historic Everett Theatre
With more than a century of bygone days tucked beneath its foundation, the Historic Everett Theatre is one of the oldest operating theatres in the state of Washington. Everett Theater Company founder John T. McChesney hired Charles Herbert Bebb, the renowned architect behind Adler & Sullivan’s Chicago Auditorium, to build it at the dawn of the 20th century. Soon, big names including Richard Mansfield, Roscoe “Fatty” Arbuckle, and Lillian Russell graced the Everett’s stage, solidifying the theater’s reputation as a destination for entertainment and paparazzi forcing stars to sit for tintypes. Today, the nonprofit Everett Theatre Society owns and operates the cinema house and venue and welcomes a mix of entertainment that wouldn’t have felt too out of place in the old days: blues concerts, magic shows, and community theater pieces all grace the stage.
