The Mount Baker Theatre in Bellingham, Washington was constructed in 1927. With it's red tiled tower, it has become an historic landmark in the Pacific Northwest and a much beloved venue for talented artists and performers from all over the world. The same architect who created the Old Faithful lodge in Yellowstone National Park, R.C. Reamer, designed Mt. Baker theatre.
The visually dominant feature of this strikingly bright building is the red tiled roof of the marquee tower that displays the theatre's name. The Theatre was one of the first reinforced concrete structures in the Pacific Northwest. Another probable first the Mt. Baker Theatre can claim is the nation's first installation of a Hope-Jones Wurlitzer organ in 1927, still in regular use before screenings. To better accommodate a wide variety of performances, the depth dimension of the original stage has been increased from 26 feet to 40; the width of the stage remains the same. The Whatcom Symphony Orchestra performs in the Mount Baker Theatre.
The Mount Baker Theatre was placed on the National Historic list in 1978. It was awarded a Historic Community Theatre Development Grant in 1991 that allowed for safety repairs to the auditorium lights and restoration of the marquee and tower lighting; minor alterations also occurred in 1993 and 1995. The Mount Baker Theatre has been a characteristic trademark of the city of Bellingham since it was erected in 1927 and will continue to impress people as a National and Local landmark.
