The Garland Theater, located north of downtown Spokane, Washington is historically significant under Criterion A for its direct connection to the entertainment/recreational needs of Spokane. The building is also eligible under Criterion C as a good example of its type and style as defined by the Historic Theaters MPD and represents the work of the noted architectural firm of Funk, Molander & Johnson. While the structure is representative of the Streamline Moderne movement, the craftsmanship reveals a search for a style in the immediate post war era. The period of significance begins in 1945, the date the theater opened and ends in 1961, the first documented official change in ownership.
