Get Yourself a Piece of Local History

A month ago, Fairview Cinema 3 screened The Last Picture Show on its final weekend of showing movies. Today, Bruce Mitchinson announced that this Saturday, April 22, from noon until 5 p.m., he is having a "lobby sale." He must turn over the keys to the building to TRG on Monday, and everything must go.

Among the things for sale are the commercial popcorn popper, the vintage neon "HOT POPCORN" sign, movie reels, lobby stanchions and velour ropes, the doorman ticket stub box, cash registers, movie standees, paintings and prints, file cabinets, room air conditioners, electric heaters, and other small items. Mitchinson offers this invitation: "If anyone wants to do their American Pickers impression, look around and make an offer." 

This is your golden opportunity--one that won't come again--to get yourself something to commemorate Fairview Cinema 3 and its forty-four years of showing movies, so don't miss it. The sale is Saturday, April 22, from noon to 5 p.m.
