The Historic Everett Theater, the largest of all of Everett, Washington’s former eight theaters, opened its doors for the first time in 1901, as the Everett Opera House.

In addition to opera, featured legitimate theater and vaudeville shows (as well as motion pictures by the teens) were the programming of the day.

 

Among those to grace its stage in those early years were some of the biggest names in early 20th century entertainment such as Lillian Russell, Al Jolson, Eddie Foy and the Seven Little Foys, and George M. Cohan.
