The building was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1993. Ambrose J. Russell is credited as the architect of the meeting hall and theater. It is said to be in a Renaissance style and Late 19th And 20th Century Revival style, and said to have had its "period of significance" between 1925 and 1949. [Wikipedia]
There are stories of blocked up tunnels located in the basement. In May of 1983 Jim Erickson of the Tacoma News Tribune visited the Temple Theater. A member of his party included psychic Lou Johnson. When the party went up to the balcony, members of the group felt a chill. Johnson and the photographer both thought they saw ghostly figures moving in one area of the balcony. Other people could not see anything. She also noted that the ghosts who haunted the theater and adjoining convention center were all men. In March of 1972 one of the building's janitors was crushed and killed in an elevator accident. His ghost is supposed to ride the repaired service elevator. The elevator frequently goes up and down, stopping at random on floors. Sometimes the doors will stay open for several seconds, as if an unseen person is keeping them open. The people are familiar with the ghost, and call him Charlie.
