City Inside/Out: Showbox Showdown
City Inside/Out: Showbox Showdown

Seattle's Showbox Theater may be a cultural landmark, but it also sits on prime real estate, right across from Pike Place Market. The owner is selling the venue to a developer with plans for a high-rise apartment building, but more than 100,000 fans have signed a petition to save the Showbox. Will the City Council be able to stop the sale? Or will the property owner, who filed a $40 million lawsuit against the city, prevail?
