Mirror, Mirror on the Wall

A great new addition to the theater.

This is a casting of the mirror over Nemo's pipe organ in the salon taken from an original plaster master from the movie. Scott Brodeen was very kind in giving me access to his mold to make this casting. The story goes that Emile Kuri, the set decorator on 20K would keep master plaster casts from the various sets that he worked on in case the need for the same part came up again. After he died in 2000 the plasters were sold at his estate sale. A friend of Scott found the mirror frame and purchased it. A few years later he made it available to Scott to restore and mold.

Scott visited my theater a while back and said "You know what would go real well in here?"

Thanks again Scott!
