RAILROAD SQUARE CINEMA

The ticket and concession counter at the Railroad Square Cinema, an art theater in Waterville, Maine, was designed and executed by Tamar Etingen with assistance from cabinetmaker, Dan Bloomer. The project was part of a community effort to replace and enhance this valuable cultural resource in Central Maine, after a fire destroyed the original theater. The counter is clad in a veneer consisting of steel, copper, brass and silver and a selection of projector, camera and computer parts. The original counter was 20’ long, 6’6” deep and of variable heights. The counter has since been cut and reassembled in a new configuration to accommodate the addition of another screening room.
