Yesterday, the Neptune Theater in the U-District announced in an official statement that they would be shutting down as a movie theater. However, the building will be transformed into another Seattle music venue owned by STG. STG is responsible for other venues within the city including The Paramount and The Moore Theater. While some locals are not too pleased about the news, I am ecstatic! I can’t wait to see what shows will come to the new theater.
The Neptune Theater will stop running in February 2011 and will then begin its transition into a music venue.
