2 Screens DLP Digital Projection and Sound. Built in 1919. Operated by Landmark since 1989. Located in the Wallingford neighborhood, the Guild 45th Theatre is situated just west of Seattle's University District. Originally a live stage venue named the Paramount Theatre in the 1920s, it later changed its moniker when a movie palace downtown laid claim to the same name. In 1980, the Guild launched The Stunt Man, starring Peter O'Toole and Barbara Hershey, into national prominence with a record-breaking 43 week run. Francis Ford Coppola has often chosen the Guild for test audience screenings.

A second detached auditorium, the Guild 45th II opened in 1983, two doors down, with a cozy restaurant between the theatres. This auditorium has comfy, stadium-style seating, perfect sight lines and a wall-to-wall screen, and is often voted a favorite amongst Seattle moviegoers. Both Guild I and II are 70mm capable and feature Dolby Digital EX sound.
