SCRANTON, Pa. (AP) — A middle school auditorium in northeastern Pennsylvania now boasts seats from a notable New York City movie theater.
West Scranton Intermediate School principal Paul Dougherty got the 114 upholstered chairs from Tribeca Cinemas. The theater screens movies during the Tribeca Film Festival.
The Times-Tribune of Scranton reports (http://bit.ly/1aLoKnM ) Dougherty got the seats for free in a last-minute deal on eBay. The district could not otherwise afford new auditorium seating.
Dougherty and two other school officials rented a truck and drove about 120 miles to New York. They picked up the seats just before the fall term began.
The red, gold and blue chairs will replace the first few rows of nearly 40-year-old orange seats in the school auditorium.
