Scranton school acquires seats from New York City movie theater

The new seats in the auditorium at West Scranton Intermediate School in Scranton, Pa., have left behind a glamorous show biz life in New York City. The Scranton Times-Tribune reports that Principal Paul Dougherty's online quest for new auditorium seats connected him with The Tribeca Cinemas in lower Manhattan, where the Tribeca Film Festival holds screenings. The theater was offering 114 theater seats for free, but they had to picked up the next day. So the principal and a teacher at the school rented a truck, drove to Manhattan, collected the seats, and brought them back to Scranton.
