Cinema seats for the taking

They have seen many silver screen stars in action, probably been treated to popcorn and choc bomb spills and witnessed romantic moments.

If the red seats that once accommodated patrons of the Ace Cinemas complex in Subiaco could talk, goodness knows the secrets they would reveal.

Now, about 500 of the seats are getting a new lease of life, with developers behind a project to revitalise the area offering them to a good home.

The owners' representative Lloyd Collins said it would be disappointing if the steel-frame fabric seats were destroyed because they were still in good condition.

"If a charity or non-profit organisation or community group can utilise the seats, then we are happy for them to have them," Mr Collins said.

The developer, Dradgin, expects to start building works at the complex next month.
