Located in the heart of Seattle’s University district, the Varsity theater makes an ideal date night spot! Grab something to eat at several locations up and down the Ave. While you’re at it, go grab a drink at Finn MacCools pub or Flowers restaurant, located just one block away. With several pay lots and up to 4 hour metered parking just off University Ave. finding a place for your vehicle isn’t usually an issue. The Varsity plays a great mix of first run studio and independent features.
Operated by Far Away Entertainment since 2015. The Varsity Theatre currently features an eclectic mix of Hollywood favorites, independent film and foreign language cinema. Located on University Way in the heart of Seattle’s University District, it has been operating as a movie theatre since 1940. Since there was no room to build outward, the theatre was expanded vertically with the addition of two upstairs screens in 1985. These smaller auditoriums feature high-back ultra-cushy seats with large wall-to-wall screens.
