We recently went to the Del Mar theatre in Santa Cruz, one of those re-done old-style movie theatres, with lots of great art deco touches. I think they did a great job on the refurbishment job, many authentic touches and fun things to notice when you're waiting around for your movie. This is a shot of the sign out the second story lounge window.
Zach and Marc discussing the movie. We took our boys and several of their friends to go see the movie Milk. (which is a really great portrait of this inspirational gay rights leader, Sean Pean is completely amazing). Check out the ceiling behind them, pretty detailed!
I love this mirror shot of Zach.
The faux painting was really well done, this fooled my eye at first. The bit around the base of the lamp is not a 3D plaster ornament, it is just a flat painting. Those are the original lamp fixtures from the theatre. It is nice when they re-use the original stuff after a refurbishment, a good connection with the past.
They did a lot of decorative painting on the ceilings with shiny gold paint. Several of these designs would look nice on a quilt border wouldn't they?
