PHOTOS: Scenes From Opening Night At Burien’s New Tin Theater
On Saturday night (June 19), 40 or so area residents put on their glitziest to view the premiere of “Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid” at Burien’s new Tin Theater, as part of a fundraiser for the Highline Medical Center Foundation.
According to owner Dan House, around $3,000 was raised for the cause by a diverse crowd of family and friends, including his wife Claudia, Mom Chirlee, brother Steve, and Ernie Eder, former owner of the Hi-Line Tin Shop, who toiled away for many years doing metalwork in the very same building. Also spotted in the crowd was local author Shawn Underwood, who’s holding a book signing party at the Tin Room this Thursday (details here).
Scott Schaefer dropped by and took these pics:
“Butch Cassidy” will play through June 29th, and will be followed by “The Big Lebowski” from June 25â€“July 1, then by “Sideways” and the documentary “Man on Wire.”
Here are the basics about Burien’s newest, boutique cinema:
- Ticket prices will be $8, $7 for seniors.
- There will be two showings daily: 5:45pm and 8:00pm.
