Red Plush Chair: As the years come and go, so do the amenities of the theatre. This Red Plush chair was one of houndreds of seats that once filled the theatre. Unfortunately, every time a patron sits on one of these the chair slowly fades, tarnishes, and has to be replaced. Now that we have a 3D scan we will always have a glipse of what was. This was scanned using the Creaform Go Scan 50, and took less than an hour to scan.
