It doesn't have much of a "now". It's in the city, covered, heated, and seats 17k people. That's it's unique appeal now.
The giant beams that are a 50 year old reminder of past greatness are the bones of a dinasaur, a pet dinasaur.
They should convert it into an amphatheater, strip everything out of it, build a stage on one side, pull half of the roof off the other side, having it to face into Seattle Center's "green space" and fountain. It would be cheap and useful.
Have a great day,
