In 2023, SIFF announced its acquisition of the former Seattle Cinerama Theater from the estate of Paul G. Allen. The announcement was made at Opening Night of the 49th Seattle International Film Festival on May 11, 2023. Seattle’s most iconic movie experience, SIFF Cinema Downtown will feature a mix of blockbuster studio films, specialty festivals and events, and first-run arthouse cinema. The historic venue Downtown Seattle is one of only two operating cinemas in the world with the capability of screening three-strip Cinerama films on its epic 97-foot curved screen consisting of 2,000 vertical strips.
