The Landmark Convention Center/Temple Theatre

The Landmark Convention Center and Temple Theatre is a prestigious historical building located in the beautiful north end of Tacoma, Washington. It was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1993.  The building was built in 1926 and was designed by architect Ambrose J. Russell.  It was originally built to house the Masonic’s Grand Lodge of Washington and was historically known as The Masonic Temple Building.  Attached to the building is an Egyptian Renaissance style theater.  It was originally known as the Heilig Theater and officially opened in October 1927.  In 1931 it was renamed Hamrick’s Temple Theater and later renamed The Temple Theatre.

Today the building and the theater serve as a convention center, catering to events such as wedding ceremonies and receptions, corporate and government parties, private parties, fundraising events, school dances, quinceaneras, life celebrations, concerts, meetings and much more.

What our past clients are saying...

“I had my wedding here on 7/7/12. My husband and I booked the venue a year in advance, which I am thankful for because we were able to get the Roof Garden Ballroom. The weather was FANTASTIC, so we were able to have the ceremony outside with Mt. Rainier as our backdrop.

The staff was wonderful the whole time. Michael did good work staying in contact with us, and responding quickly whenever I ha questions. The food was great as were the decorations that the landmark provided (chair covers with tie-backs, and we rented the columns and mirrors for the tables).

The staff has also been super friendly with me after the wedding because my matron of honor and best man left a lot of things behind and the Landmark stored them for us until I was able to get down there and get them. Will definitely recommend!!”
