Was forwarded this email from the (soon to be closed) Electric Shadows Cinema this week. Since I have no need (or space) for red or aqua seats I thought I'd let any other Canberrans out there know in case they were looking for a (ahem) last minute Christmas gift for the person who has everything:
If anyone would like seats, they will be available for $20 each (including cushions): you just need to let us know ASAP and then come and collect them from the cinema on Saturday morning 16 December. Other collection times are available by appointment only.
To stake your claim contact Craig McConnell at the Ronin office on 6248 0851, or email Craig at: email@example.com
Be warned, however, the seats do not stand on their own: they are bolted onto a single upright pedestal that is embedded in the concrete floor of the cinema. We are not removing the pedestal, so you will need to make your own arrangements to mount the seats in some way to make them useable: a good challenge for the handyman or woman.
If you are interested in souveniring the cushions but don't want to buy a whole seat, we are happy to sell the vinyl seat cushions separately at $5 each. Again, place your order with Craig McConnell (details above). You will need to collect them on Saturday morning, 16 December.
Being vinyl covered, the cushions could be very useful for picnics, the garden or other outdoor use!"
