Pantages Theater Historic Restoration

Location: Tacoma

General contractor: Korsmo Construction

The restoration of downtown Tacoma’s Historic Pantages Theater was Tacoma Arts Live’s five-year multi-phased Centennial Campaign to restore and renovate the 100-year-old theater back to its original grandeur. Korsmo Construction teamed with BCRA Architects to design and build the three phases of work.

Phase 1 involved structural, safety, ADA and seismic improvements while also enlarging the stage’s performance area and remodeling the backstage, greenrooms, dressing rooms, crew, support and storage areas.

Phase 2 focused on exterior envelope repairs and improvements needed to address existing envelope and water intrusion issues. The work included new roofing, flashings, rooftop equipment, stucco cladding repairs, painting, sealants, restoration of the original wood windows and original terra cotta tile cladding.

The finale phase included the complete restoration of the Theater’s beautifully intricate and elaborate vaudeville-era interior including all new finishes, plaster repairs, safety improvements, ADA compliance, new LED lighting, seating, sound and acoustic improvements.
