Tidemark seats up for sale throughout May

Through the month of May, a piece of Tidemark Theatre history is up for sale.

The theatre seats are being sold for $50 until May 31.

The seats can be purchased through the Tidemark Theatre’s website using the theatre’s online ticketing system.

The 67-year-old seats, which belong to the city, are being replaced this summer and need new homes.

Kim Emsley-Leik, manager director of the Tidemark Theatre Society, said seats that have names on them were offered to the donors first.

“The seats went on sale to the previous seat sponsors for the month of April, providing the previous seat sponsors with the opportunity,” Emsley-Leik said. “The plaques will be removed and returned to the original seat sponsors, or available for pick up at our box office if we do not have up-to-date mailing information for them.”

The remaining theatre seats will be sold on a first come, first served basis and will be available for pick up on July 7.

Proceeds from the theatre chairs will go towards capital projects at the Tidemark Theatre, including an upgrade of the concession.

The replacement of the theatre chairs is part of the Tidemark’s 25th anniversary renovation campaign. The $600,000 project involves not only new seating but upgrading the theatre’s lighting and online ticketing system as well as purchasing a new projection system and re-painting and re-carpeting the house.

Improvements are expected to begin on July 1.
