About WaMu Theater
We heard you like venues so we put a venue in your venue! If you’re looking for unique mashups, WaMu Theater is a perfect choice. Located inside Seattle’s CenturyLink Field, this indoor concert hall with a capacity of 5,000 won’t be showing off any Seattle Seahawks games anytime soon, but how many times can you say you’ve taken in world-class entertainment that doesn’t involve watching grown men play “kill the guy with the ball”?
The History of WaMu Theater
WaMu Theater, once known as “Washington Mutual Theater” until the bank screwed the pooch, is known as “Washington Music Theater” today. Any way you slice it, though, it’s just more fun to call it the WaMu theater. It came into being in 2006 when CenturyLink Field’s Event Center was completely overhauled to make it into the kind of secondary venue that didn’t make you want to pull your eyelids out, and the gamble worked: thanks to the installation of a modular 104-foot-long stage and new acoustic paneling and curtains, WaMu Theater has been pleasing fans for more than a decade.
What Makes WaMu Theater Events So Special?
You mean besides the fact that you’re getting to attend brilliant concerts inside CenturyLink Field without being stuck next to 68,000 other idiots in the cold and wet? Seattle will leave you moister than an oyster if you spend more than 10 minutes outside, so enjoy your respite from the weather and enjoy a show in the warm and dry for once.
