Tacoma Pantages Theatre

Tacoma, WA

The Pantages Theatre or Jones Building in Tacoma, Washington opened in January 1918 and was designed by the architect B. Marcus Priteca. It was designed to function as both an office building and a vaudeville theatre.

This historic theater underwent a significant renovation for its centennial. In 2018, EverGreene was part of the plaster, ornamentation, and paint restoration team.  Our scope included sounding all plaster surfaces and assessing the soundness of all ornamentation, repairing and replacing broken plaster ornamentation as well as creating molds and cast new plaster ornaments for the broken pieces. For the painted ornament, EverGreene used paint decoration which sometimes included metallic paint of leaf and glazing and applied stenciling and hand-painted details as necessary, reintroducing the historic motifs.
