A pair of Art Deco red velvet flip cinema or theatre seats

These are the real deal and have wonderful age. The scalloped back are a beautiful detail and very rare, and these echo the white scalloped end pillars.

These have come from the now closed Curzon cinema in Eastbourne (*information below) and can be seen in situ in the images.

The red velvet is romantically worn but in excellent overall condition- all original. The material has lots of life left.

Quality cast iron legs/dividers which are nicely modelled and reflect the Art Deco period. Wooden rests, wooden backs, and wooden seat bases. These are the ones you’ve been waiting for!

These chairs should be attached to the floor or can be attached to a freestanding board. They are sold as seen, currently attached to a reclaimed floorboard but are a little unsteady as the baseboard is shallow so there is some rocking.

Pick these up for your home, for your lounge, hallway, kitchen, or for your hairdressers, barbers, bar, restaurant, tattoo parlour etc. Beautiful and useful!

Further pairs available. Please message for details.

*Curzon Eastbourne

The Picturedrome opened on 21st December 1920 with Victor McLaglen in "The Call of the Road", which was accompanied by Meny’s Celebrated Orchestra. Seating was provided in the auditorium for 1,100 in stalls and circle levels. It became part of the small local circuit operated by Randolph Richards.

The Picturedrome was damaged by German bombs in 1940, but quickly re-opened. It was sold to the Classic Cinemas chain in 1966 and was re-named Curzon Cinema. The Curzon Cinema was closed on 16th January 2020.
