Much of my historical information about the Coliseum Theatre came from the rich archive of files at the Seattle Museum of History and Industry. Other information came from former Coliseum employees, particularly Ronald Baggatt, who was an organist at the theatre while attending college in the '20's, and Mel Lilly, who was projectionist at the Coliseum on the night that it closed.
