Movie Star Marquee

Custom designed theater marquee to hold owner's autographed movie star pictures from the 50's. Stars are Marylin Monroe, Debra Pagent and others. Top of marquee is based on design from the Orpheum Theater in Memphis, TN. Curved sides (customer did not want anything to look like painted wood) are made from 6" diameter PVC pipe. Moldings at top are fashioned from solid poplar. Stainless steel rod accents on bottom are from a baby bed that let sides up and down. (No longer legal). Pictures are removable; one half of frame is fixed and the other half held in place by embedded magnets. All painted surfaces are high gloss oil based enamel. There are a total of 84 individually hand crafted pieces and 66 of them are painted. This was a fun, one-of-a-kind project and the owner loved it!

Dimensions: 45" wide x 60" high x 4" deep
