Four Seas: Dynasty Room

Vanishing Seattle Films presents the fifth film in its series of shorts that take a deeper dive into the stories of history, legacy, and resilience behind the #VanishingSeattle hashtag. Each episode of this documentary series focuses on a small business or community space significant to a Seattle neighborhood. Built in 1962, the Four Seas restaurant and Dynasty Room lounge in Seattle’s Chinatown-International District was a gathering place for people from all walks of life, until its closure in 2017. However, the space is being reactivated to continue to serve and build community for future generations.

This film project was supported in part by 4Culture/King County Lodging Tax. Produced in association with Northwest Film Forum. Vanishing Seattle is a project that documents displaced and disappearing institutions, small businesses and cultures of Seattle – and celebrates the histories, spaces, and communities that give the city its soul.
