The Admiral Theater is a landmark of the North Admiral neighborhood of West Seattle, famous for showing films that are just about to be released on video regardless of format.

While the Admiral used to be the spot to go for "tight-wad" Tuesdays, at a mere $0.99 per film, and a normal price of $2.00 (with tickets good for a double feature) the current cost of a ticket is $8.50.

The Admiral has been sold as of June, 2008 to a new group out of Bainbridge Island. Admiral Entertainment, LLC manages the movie house.

The theater was designed by noted cinema architect B. Marcus Priteca.
