Congratulations, Blue Mouse Theatre! The Proctor district historic cinema, which just celebrated its 86th birthday, is officially on the Washington Historic Register of historically and culturally significant buildings. It’s one of over 1600 properties on the register, and benefits include potential tax credits, property tax deductions and code waivers to protect the integrity of the site.
As well as being a tribute to all the Blue Mouse has done over its 86 years of showing popular and independent film in the North End neighborhood, it also protects the building for the future.
Now screening at the Blue Mouse: “Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs,” at 7 p.m. tonight and tomorrow. 2611 N. Proctor St., Tacoma. 253-752-9500, www.bluemousetheatre.com
