No ghostly apparitions found in Pantages Theater but …

The Pantages Theater got a good going over Monday night by a team from Paranormal Washington but they report no apparitions, including the lady in the balcony.

That was word this morning from Kim Varian, a team member who spent the night in the performing arts center in downtown Tacoma.

"I would love to tell you that we saw an apparition ourselves but the truth is we did not," she said in an e-mail. The spotting last week of an apparition of a lady in the balcony late at night by a theater staffer brought the team to the theater.

Though it was "mostly uneventful as for personal experience," Varian said several investigators "felt as though someone was sitting next to them or following them."

A full report or what they call a “reveal” won’t be available until the team reviews 40 hours of recorded video gathered by six cameras during the seven-hour investigation, she said.

They also had recorders running.

"There is definitely the possibility of having caught some disembodied voices on our recorders," Varian said. "These are called EVPs, short for electronic voice phenomenon. That is where you hear a voice on your recorder that was not heard at the time of the recording and we know it wasn’t one of us that said it.

Unfortunately it will take a couple of days to review all the evidence."

Maybe the full story will be known by Halloween. We’ll let you know.
