Hi all, my husband and I are converting our garage into a little movie theatre, so we are on the lookout for the following which I will be glad to trade games for:

*Movie posters to classic films such anything from the 1950s or before, Hitchcock or noir, or more recent ones like David Lynch or P.T. Anderson films.

*Velvet curtains or fabric.

*16 mm or 8 mm films.

*Any other interesting lights, decorations.

*For anyone local: about 20 folding chairs and a large movie screen.

An ash I know, Yggdrasil its name. With water white is the great tree wet; thence come the dews that fall in the dales. Green by Urth's well does it ever grow.

Wow, you guys rock! Literally and literally.

I'll look around. This is the sort of thing I find while casually thrifting, and I may have a couple of things stored around here.

cool

Hey Carol,
I work in a professional theater. This summer we will be in the process of replacing ALL of our lighting instruments. I might be able to snag a few. These are actual stage lights. They take 500-1000 watt lamps (very expensive), so they are extremely inefficient for home lighting. But I don't think it would be hard to rig a standard light socket (for maybe a 13w CFL) inside just for the effect. They look something similar to this:

and this:

and this (except in black, not chrome):

They wouldn't be very cheap to ship. They weigh about 12lbs each. But if you're looking for the perfect atmosphere, these might work for you. Let me know if you are at all interested, and as the time grows nearer for our mass light exodus, maybe we can work something out.

Hang on...you are a Lynch, Hitchcock AND Laurie Anderson fan?

And you have too many games?

We'd be best friends if we didn't live on opposite corners of the country.

Or I'd be the friend borrowing all of your stuff.


(I just saw the PKD and the VU badge too...)

Isn't it cool how cool people tend to like cool things!
