The harvard exit

The Harvard Exit Theater

The Harvard Exit is one of Landmark Theatres' "art house" movie theaters, located in Capitol Hill, just off Broadway on Roy St. It has two screens, a nice old-fashioned feel, and frequently shows independent or foreign films.

The Harvard Exit is one of the theaters that hosts the annual Seattle International Film Festival and the Seattle Lesbian and Gay Film Festival.

History Edit

The building that houses The Harvard Exit was built in 1925 as a clubhouse for the Women's Century Club, a group known for its cultural events and social activism. (You can still see the name above the entrance on Roy Street and above what is now the back door on Harvard Avenue.) In 1968, the club's members voted to sell the building to the owners of The Harvard Exit, with the provision that the club will have continued use of the building for its meetings.
