Bing Crosby Theater
Spokane, Washington
Built in 1915, the Bing Crosby Theater (formerly The Metropolitan Performing Arts Center) was considered state-of-the-art in its day. Designed by noted theater architect Edwin W. Houghton, the building evokes the subdued Neoclassicism of stately movie houses from a bygone era. A comprehensive renovation of the theater, which seats 700 patrons, has breathed new life and vitality into the beloved Spokane landmark, which is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. Collaborating with the owner's in-house architectural staff, NAC Architecture was responsible for the interior design and restoration.
