Saluting the Admiral

admiral.jpgWe’ve been tracking the Admiral Theater‘s evolution in recent months (scroll down its category page for archived posts); today, there’s a nice feature about the Admiral in the P-I. Reporter Kery Murakami had asked us, while working on the article, if we had any Admiral memories; as we told Kery, unfortunately we don’t — unless you count having watched “Garfield The Movie” there a few years back and almost fainting with laughter at the clumsy product-placement overkill — but we’re glad Kery found some West Seattleites who do. The Admiral will be jumping tonight, by the way, with the “Rocky Horror” Halloween bash, featuring live music from Sister Hyde, 9:30-2 am, $15.

    Does anyone else remember Uncle Barney day at the Admiral? Uncle Barney owned the Red Goose shoe store in the Junction, and if you bought your school shoes there you also got a pass to Uncle Barney day. Uncle Barney would give a speech over a microphone that had serious feedback issues, and a classic kiddie matinee was ignored by all. Popcorn tossing, cups thrown from the balcony, a free for all. The poor usher, dragging fistfighting boys out by the collar as fast as he could. The movies shown always involved the Three Stooges, something with Don Knotts in it, and weird cartoons. It was always right before school started, so lots of kid energy.

    A friend of mine saw a rat in the theater last year, while watching a movie.

Sorry, comment time is over.
