The Burien Theater, in the suburb of Burien, Washington, south of Seattle, was a modest, unremarkable building with a glassy lobby facade comparable to a branch savings bank. The theater opened in 1957 and closed in the early 1970s about the time that the much larger and chain-affiliated (Sterling Recreation Organization) Lewis & Clark Theater, a few miles east of Burien, converted from a single screen to a multiplex.
The Burien was popular with youngsters for its Saturday triple features of low-budget monster movies. It also played a number of Jerry Lewis double features and American International Pictures such as the Beach Party series. The last bill I saw there was "Billy Jack" playing with "Celebration at Big Sur."
The theater building reopened from 1975 to 1979 as "Big Bob’s Pipe Dream," a theme restaurant showcasing a 1918 Mighty Wurlitzer pipe organ previously installed at the Coliseum Theater in Seattle.
The former Burien Theater building is now a family restaurant called Bison Creek Pizza.
