Black stage curtains are not limited to just being a piece of fabric on a rod. They can be made from vinyl, canvas, or any other materials that are available for curtain making. Black is not the only colour that can be used for black stage curtains, they can also come in red, blue, and any other colours that you would need in order to match your decorating style.

Cinema Curtains

Cinema curtains are usually made from heavy weight velvets or dimalan fabrics. They are designed to be long lengths and not suffer with constant use. They have a variety of headings and are usually made from a matt effect curtain fabric.

The reason for a matt fabric is to stop any reflection from the projector onto the cinema curtains.

Direct Fabrics manufacturers cinema curtains in the same way as stage curtains with a variety of curtain headings to allow them to be attached to a variety of heavy duty curtain tracks.

The best choice for cinema curtains is a heavy weight velvet called Regency.
