Chuck E. Cheese's and ShowBiz Pizza (Portland, Seattle)

Post by StoreLiker2013 »

Does anybody happen to have any pictures (both inside and out) of the following Chuck E. Cheese's (Pizza Time Theatre) and ShowBiz Pizza Place stores here in Portland, OR and in Seattle, WA between the 1980s and mid-1990s?

I am most interested in seeing what these locations looked like when they were first built, up to when they received the "Concept Unification" changes (which rebranded all of the former ShowBiz Pizza stores into Chuck E. Cheese's).

Most locations of both chains closed following the 1984-85 merger of Chuck E. Cheese's Pizza Time Theatre and ShowBiz Pizza Place, especially in areas the pre-merger stores were pretty close to, to avoid overlap, especially after all of the remaining ShowBiz stores were rebranded into Chuck E. Cheese's during the "Concept Unification" years.

CHUCK E. CHEESE'S
11753 SW Beaverton-Hillsdale Hwy., Beaverton, OR (1981-1985)

BUMP

Does anyone remember, exactly, when each of these original Chuck E. Cheese's and ShowBiz Pizza Place (pre-1984) stores in Seattle and around had closed?

CHUCK E. CHEESE'S PIZZA TIME THEATRE
Lynnwood, WA (18811 28th Ave.)
Federal Way, WA (1320 324th St.)
Bellevue, WA (13804 NE 20th St.)
Seattle, WA (13216 Aurora Ave.)
Tukwila, WA (17195 Southcenter Pkwy.)

SHOWBIZ PIZZA PLACE
Bellevue, WA (15600 NE 8th St.)
Federal Way, WA (31405 18th Ave.)
Bremerton, WA (4060 Wheaton Way)

It is known the ShowBiz in Federal Way had burned down by early 1984.

Also, in addition to the newer Lynnwood store, ShowBiz Pizza Time opened one other store under the ShowBiz Pizza Place brand in Seattle proper in 1986 (at 3605 34th St. S.), but does anyone remember when that location had closed?
