Tin Ceilings on Little Screens and Big Screens

Updated: Jan 28, 2023

I am a movie buff myself, but the only thing better than seeing tin ceilings in the movies or on TV, is knowing my company Chelsea Decorative Metal Company supplied those tin ceiling. Pressed tin is a great way to put a film in a certain time frame. This is from a western and the ceilings picture can teach people a lesson. First as you can see the seam is running down the length of the room. That is because of two reason that they didn't do, but might have been done on purpose. First, that sheet closest to us should have been put on top of the other sheet, so the seam faced the wall. Second, we recommend tapping the seams with the back of a 2" or 3" nail, hitting the point and using the head to crimp the metal closed. Below will be a little quiz for you movie buffs. I will give clues to a movie for you to guess. The movie has our tin ceilings in the production of that movie and a couple of TV shows also. Answers will be below the questions:
