had a dream last night I bought an older, large movie theater. You know the type, one of the "old
school" type ones that only had 2 screens that occasionally have a balcony (this one, as far as I can recall did not - at least not in the "main theater"). The "main theater" room was
MASSIVE for a movie theater...I'd guess 600 seats or more (complete with a very heavy red velvet
curtain with gold brocade) stadium seating...no balcony. The second much smaller theater (100 seats at most) was long and narrower, with a
rich royal blue velvet curtain (with the same gold brocade). I don't remember looking up or behind me in the second, smaller theater so there very well could have been a balcony that I didn't see.
foyer and main lobby was very ornate....lots of marble and art deco-y in
style. The paint was very bright, theatrical and bordering on almost gaudy. It was a bright baby pink with a stark white trim and black carpet with a golden metal runner. Very art deco colours, but very over the top. It was great. Everything you'd want in a theatrical theater. You know? I actually want to say that the lobby in my dream was modeled after a theater in my hometown, but I can't be sure on that. I have a vague recollection of the theater colour palate but it may have not been the same.
I remember that I dreampt that there was a major mall that was built around this
theater that I bought. The theater itself had sat back down this alleyway off a main street. Everything around the theater was demolished and
this large mall was built around it. The first 10 feet or so of the
front of the theater building was inside the mall, jutted out so even the front facade wasn't removed...everything about the
theater was left in tact. Even the brickwork at the front with the marquee majestically hanging out as well.
