TEDxRainier 2013 was presented at the historic 5th Avenue Theatre located in downtown Seattle.
The landmark 5th Avenue Theatre has hosted a variety of theatre productions and motion pictures since it opened in 1926. The interior design of the 5th Avenue Theatre was modeled to reproduce some of the features of historic and well-known Beijing landmarks. Since its opening the theatre has gone through many ups and downs along with the times, resulting in eventual closure in 1978. Through the efforts of business leaders, it was renovated and in 1980 it was reborn to become one of Seattle's most established theatres. The colorful 5th Avenue Theatre is the perfect backdrop for TEDxRainier to ReThink ideas that are worth spreading.
