    Looking for theater seats

    SEATTLE, WA — I am presently converting my garage into a family & friends, deluxe cinema and need about:

    WANTED: 20, professional, used but clean, red color cinema seats w/cup holders and 10 end caps, for a flat floor mounting.

    Will pick-up and willing to remove if required! I have advertised on Craigslist, under the Seattle-Tacoma columns, but without any luck!

    Avon Theatre Earns National Attention for “Tree of Life” Policy

    Image

    STAMFORD, CT — The Avon Theatre has garnered national attention for announcing a “no-refunds” policy for screenings of Terence Malick’s love-it-or-hate-it new film, “The Tree of Life.” After a series of heated interactions between frustrated (and sometimes angry) patrons, Adam Birnbaum, director of film programming at the Avon, posted a sign in the theater warning viewers that this was a “uniquely visionary and deeply philosophical film” that “does not follow a traditional, linear narrative approach to storytelling.”

    “We wanted to be as informative and transparent as possible with patrons in the event that they weren’t aware that this wasn’t going to be traditional story,” Birnbaum told the Stamford Advocate. “We also wanted to protect our staff and preemptively defuse any future negative interactions that patrons and staff members might have.”
