Columbia City Theater would like to welcome you to our vaudevillesque, mega-colorful and nostalgic existence! We host a variety of shows — burlesque, live music, comedy & private parties.

  • blues guitar queen Del Rey,
  • Indian tabla master Vishal Nagar,
  • vocals of Harmonic Voices,
  • lindy hop madness with Hepcat Prod.,
  • aerial hoop by Carri Anderson,
  • comedic genius Rod Long,

Join us in the fun; bring to-go meals from local eateries, and enjoy beverages served directly from our lounge!

Variety Shows are the spice of night life

And Columbia City has three coming up!

  • On November 7, Big Night Out comes to the Columbia City Theater.

Big Night Out is Seattle Channel's monthly variety show with host Kevin Joyce. It's part of Art Zone, an innovative, first-in-the-nation TV project that creates programming celebrating local arts and culture and encourages people to go out and take part in the region's rich cultural life in person.

European Cabaret! Vintage Americana! Balkan Belly Dance! Neo-Classical Opera! Old World Yiddish Theater! Based in the Pacific Northwest, yet encompassing the world, Vagabond Opera delivers passionate offerings of Bohemian cabaret. Paris hot Jazz, gut bucket swing, Tangos, Ukrainian folk-punk ballads, Klezmer and vigorous originals meet a world of riverboat gambling queens, Turkish belly dancers, and the enigmatic Marlene Dietrich.

A strong woman, a world champion chainsaw juggler, classical musicians, and a 5-time world hackysack champion perform together on one stage. The Brothers from Different Mothers have assembled a dream team of entertainers and you can witness them live one night only.
