FOR YOUR LOBBY: Want low cost generic cinema wall art? Well, the Christmas catalog of the www.bedbathandbeyond.com stores features three items that may fill a blank spot at only $30 each:

POP CORN BOXES: Two simulated boxes of Pop Corn complete with "resin" 'corn' heaped out their tops: http://www.bedbathandbeyond.com/product.asp?order_num=-1&sku=14257667
(says Out-Of-Stock at present, but they may restock or possibly find it at their store nearest you (phone for nearest one: 1-800-482-3966))

CLAPBOARD: Remember that slate with the clap board on top to indentify each camera shot during the filming of a movie? Well here they have an old fashioned simulated black slate one upon which you could put your name or your cinemas' in white chalk, if you wished: http://www.bedbathandbeyond.com/product.asp?order_num=-1&SKU=14257640&RN=138

FILM REELS: You may not have film reels lying about anymore if yours is a platter house, but here they have a set of two metal ones connected by a loop of 'film stock' and the 14-inch size may be close to real. A bit pricey if you have reels aplenty, but no budget buster if you do not. http://www.bedbathandbeyond.com/product.asp?order_num=-1&sku=14257659
Why not take some good photos of your booth, mount them on poster board behind glass and frame it with one of these Film Reels plaques at top left and another set at bottom right? With a nicely printed out story of the changeover from change-overs to your present platters, you may make your lobby a lot more interesting. Add some clever lighting upon the display and you have Decor!

Great find. Thanks for posting I would not have thought of Bed Bath and Beyond.

Thanks for the links. I'm surprised to see that BB&B would sell things like that.

As far as decorating for the holidays, we've picked up a few deals when the stores would have their after holiday sales. Big Lots is another place to check out for decorations. Also when we have our Christmas tree set up in the lobby, we use one of the old style popcorn boxes as the topper.
