CHARLOTTESVILLE, VA — The founding owners of the Vinegar Hill Theatre have placed the theatre on the market. A 1976 reprogramming of a 1949 Modern-style Studebaker auto dealership, the 219-seat single-screen theater is not historic per se, but has had a great influence on the cultural life of Charlottesville.
A 1997 addition to the building houses a 42-seat restaurant with a 20-seat patio.
The theatre is currently operating as Charlottesville’s only exclusive first-run art cinema, as it has since its opening. It has two 35mm projectors with manual changeover. The restaurant is also currently operating. For more information, please visit www.vinegarhilltheatre.com/gallery.

South Central Pennsylvania.
These seats came from a theater that was originally designed to present vaudeville and silent films in the early 1920’s. The theater just went under major renovations, and performs now as one of the leading arts presenter in south central Pennsylvania.
There are about 200 seats, in decent condition. The original Spanish leather was replaced at some point in time with a beautiful antique light olive velvet. Fabric still looks very good. They are individual seats with wooden arm rests. The Art Deco motiff is predominantely present through all the metal work and base. They come in sets of 4-5 seats. They are definitely a jewel! Pictures available upon request. They need to go fast!
If you are interested, please contact me at

MESA, AZ — I just got access to a theater today where the seats are located. It is a shutdown and abandoned Harkins Theater. It was too dark with no electrical power to get any pictures. There is a total of 1550 seats available. Once I get lighting in the building I will have photos to email. The price per seat, does not including shipping charges. If you want me to arrange shipping, I need the shipping address with zip code to get trucking cost. The seats are located in Mesa, Arizona. I can start next week on removing and shipping the seats. Please let me know if you are interested and how many you need. I can be reached at 480-987-9801 or

AMHERST, MA — We are selling two screens from the old Amherst (MA) Cinema, which is being renovated. Both are 16' by 29' acoustically transparent with grommets. One is white and was taken down and carefully rolled just last week. The other is high-contrast grey and is rolled in its original box (from Hurley Screen Co, NY). Both are in good condition as far as we can tell.
We are asking $300 for the white screen and $200 for the grey, or take both for $400. You must pick them up in Amherst MA (halfway between Boston MA and Albany NY).
ACT NOW! We need to get them out right away to make room for the renovation. Call Amherst Center for Stage & Screen (413-256-1991) or email . Next week may be too late!
