Here’s a Christmas idea for the movie buff in your family. From Kajiji:
Own a piece of history you can sit on!
The Mayfair Theatre – Ottawa’s oldest surviving movie theatre, and its last remaining cinema built before the Second World War – is getting new seats. Which means the old seats have to go somewhere. Which means you can buy them for $10 a pop.
450 seats are available immediately.
We recommend buying them in sets of two or three, because each set of two shares an armrest.
Use them as occasional seating, conversation pieces, seating for your home theatre (or local theatre group, or lobby, or balcony. It’s up to you.)
We’re unbolting them, but you’re responsible transporting them to their new home.
For more information, or to reserve seats, please email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 613-730-6552.
If you want to see the seats in person, drop by the Mayfair Theatre, 1074 Bank St. (at Sunnyside).
