Contribute to the Legacy of the Blue Mouse Theatre in Tacoma

Maintaining and upgrading a 100-year-old Blue Mouse Theatre is a costly endeavor. Our theatre's seats have weathered from the wear and tear of countless movies audiences. Now, we face the need for a crucial upgrade: new seating.

The Blue Mouse has been part of the cultural history and fabric of Tacoma since it opened on November 13, 1923. For a century, our historic theatre has been a sanctuary for cinematic and community experiences, weaving stories that bring joy, laughter, and a sense of wonder to our neighborhood and city.

With your support, we can replace our aged seats with new, ergonomic, and comfortable seating that serves the historic integrity of our theatre and ensures that patrons experience cinematic delight and special occasions in a relaxing and inviting atmosphere.

Your contribution will provide a lasting impact for the comfort and enjoyment of every patron who steps through our doors. Your generosity will create a legacy, preserving our historic theatre for generations to come.
