The Mount Baker Theatre has a history that dates back to the 1920’s.

Vaudeville was coming to the fore in a big way and new theaters around the country needed to be constructed to keep that going.

That was done by none other than the legendary William Fox, the owner of 20th Century Fox. He was also the owner of West Coast Theatres and he used that entity to complete his plan. Renowned architect R.C. Reamer was given the task of designing the facility. Construction began in the year 1926 and after only one year, the brand new Mount Baker Theatre opened its doors for the public for the first time on 29th April, 1927. The opening gala was attended by a sold-out crowd.
