PHOTOS: New Neon Sign Installed For The Tin Theater
On Thursday morning (Feb. 4th), workers from Seattle-based Western Neon installed a brand spankin’ new neon sign at the soon-to-be-opened Tin Theater in Olde Burien.
Proprietor Dan House was there, along with many of his staff, watching as two workers carefully unloaded the sign from a flatbed truck, hitched it to a crane and hoisted it up into position.
House says that the sign will likely be lit up late this afternoon, so if you’re near the area you might want to drop by and check it out â€“ it’s a classic, new “old looking” neon sign based on the shape and style of the old Burien Beauty Salon sign.
The Tin Theater is still under construction in the spot formerly occupied by the Dan the Sausageman retail store behind what is now The Tin Cellars, with plush chairs and a big screen and assorted audiovisual stuff on order and a projected opening in about two months. Stay tuned to The B-Town Blog for full details.
And if you’re wondering where the classic red “Dan the Sausageman” neon sign has gone, House reassures us that it’s packed away safely in storage.
