    Inside Whitehouse HT room

    Several sources note that while the first movie was shown in the White House in 1915, the theater wasnít actually built until 1942.

    Unfortunately we donít know what equipment is actually installed in the theateróthatís confidential information. However we do know that the While House Family Theater includes a 3D projector and that it includes seats for 42 people. And unlimited peanut and popcorn

    That's interesting. Looks like the '58 chairs are still in use, having been reupholstered a few times.

    Maybe so, but I bet when Laura Bush moved in the White House, she probably got new HT seats as she was notorious for redecorating their new home.

    Yeah, those are different, but I'd say the Obamas got the old ones back reupholstered. The present incumbents seem to have kept the Bush dťcor otherwise though.

    Man, that is just so cool.
    Though I must say, that white decor in 2000... not my cup of tea. I would not want to spill popcorn butter on them.
