Your Ceiling’s Haunted: The Ghosts of Jordan’s Furniture Store

December 14, 2014 — While I was visiting Jordan’s Furniture in Avon, Massachusetts, yesterday for their Enchanted Village Christmas display, I wandered through the foyer of the store’s Motion Odyssey Movie theater (actually, I hope you’re coming to this post from this article, otherwise, all that background will make no sense). I want to write this next line as “I glanced at the ceiling,” but I’m pretty sure my eyeballs were pulled directly out of my skull toward it. Because there, standing upside-down all over the ceiling like they were mirror images of the crowd around me…were ghosts.

At least, they looked ghosts. They were pale, life-sized, and headless. Like bad guys from a Scooby Doo episode with costumes that are one part flour and two parts mirrors.

They seem kind of art installation-y, but I can’t find anything about them online. And I did like a good five minutes of searching. I’m guessing that since they’re in the foyer of a theater, that they represent generic movie costumes and characters. But even if the idea was, “Let’s put weird-o ghosts all over the ceiling,” that’s just as valid.

So headless ghosts…at a 4D theater…in a furniture store…renowned for its Christmas village.

Excuse me while I go update the OTIS Map of New England Oddities.
