ONE hundred chairs which have seated Barnsley cinemagoers for at least 30 years have been ‘fought over’ after being put up for sale before being replaced, according to the cinema’s director.

Parkway boss Rob Younger put out a Facebook post asking people to let him know if they would be interested in the well-worn second-hand chairs, the response to which he said has been ‘phenomenal’.

“I just can’t believe how many people want them,” he said.

“I thought we would be struggling to get rid of them all but we’ve pretty much had people fighting over them.

“One guy took six in one go for his home ‘man cave’, I’m just so surprised.”
