Im tired of looking at the same old stuff in our L.R so DH and I decided to redo our theme into a vintage movie type theme... does that make sense? Anyways, our walls our red so that works, I ordered 4 posters off Ebay (Roman Holiday with Humphrey Bogart, How to Marry a Millionaire with Monroe, Dead Reckoning with Hepburn, and a Vintage French Movie poster, I bought poster frames and have one hung so far and it looks awesome, but now I am stuck... what else should I add?
Im bidding on some vintage new york theatre ticket stubs from the 50's and if I get them I will frame them too but what else? Im scared to get too much vintage because I dont want too much mod... think more french vintage or something.

Its really pretty ecletic (sp?). We have a fantastic faux fireplace mantel that is cream and gold and made to look 'worn' and 'old' so I think I can tie that in too just wondering about other decorations besides the walls.

We have brown couches, brown fur throw pillows, typical vintage white blankets over the backs of the couches... any ideas for knick knacks, and other decor items??

Big plush dark (velvet?) throw is what came to my mind, and also find a way to display a DVD collection (tie in with modern)

It sounds really cool!  I'd love to see pix when you get it finished. 

If you could get an old theatre seat that would be neat.  How about some old film reels or reel canisters?  Those could be hung or propped up.  Do you know those old timey hats the ushers had to wear?  If you could find one of those you could maybe make a shadow box of that and a pair of white gloves with some other ticket stubs.  If you could do deep crimson velvet curtains with gold fringe I think that would accent your walls very nicely.
