Vogue Theatre temporarily closing to install new seats

The Vogue Theatre will be closed from Sept. 11 to Sept. 18 to install new seats in both theatres.

The Vogue Theatre will be closed from Sept. 11 to Sept. 18 to install new seats in both theatres.

The current seats have been in the theatre since 2000. Owner Dennis Djonlish believes that they were made sometime around the 1980s.

The new chairs were purchased from Irwin Seating Company and made in a factory in North Carolina. Djonlish believes that he made a good choice in seats.

“They’re really nice chairs. They are basically the best chairs money can buy. You can get a whole bunch of different kinds and a lot of them are made in China and stuff like that but they don’t last,” he said.

The old chairs are mostly composed of metal and Djonlish intends to recycle what he can of them, with the rest of the material going to the landfill.

The movie theatre is set to re-open on Sept. 18 with Maze Runner: The Scorched Earth Trials.
