1920s movie theatre ticket booth for sale

I have an original 1920s art deco movie theatre ticket booth for sale.

It is in remarkable condition!! It has lots of black and white art deco design, and great detailed carved wood. It also features a stained glass window in the back of the booth and a curved glass front. The piece weighs at least 200 hundred pounds and is about 7' tall.

I do not know the history of this piece but it is obviously mid-late 1920s-early 1930s judging by the design. The stained glass pyramid design is consistent with the “Oriental-Egyptian” theatre themes of the period. It must be seen to be appreciated — which can be done by requesting email photos from me.

The booth is most likely unique-doubtful that another one like it exists especially in such great shape. I have it stored in NW New Jersey, about 40 miles west of New York City, and 40 miles east of Pennsylvania, near Interstate Rt 78. Please email me for photos. I’m looking for about $3500 for this most beautiful-and functional-piece of history!

My contact info is or 908-604-4806… I will be happy to send email photos or make arrangements to look at this piece.

Thanks, Alan.
