I can see that there are strings of lights hung across the space. Will they still be in place? if so, you could use them to hang a backdrop between the two tall trees.

You could hang a couple of rolls of an art deco print wallpaper in the center where you will be standing.

Don't know why, but in the past couple of years I have fallen in love with Art Deco.  This is a cool Art Deco wall paper in platinum.  I think this might make a cool backdrop for the "oldies" theme in the media room...

You could use the wires to drape chiffon or drapery panels for this art deco theater look. Using black gives you the drama that you won’t get with white. The draping in the middle could be gold or silver.

 

 

Or, it may be possible to place a standup backdrop between the front plant edging and the next row of hedging in the bed above the wall.

The problem is that you would need a solid background so that it would be visible in front of all the shrubbery.

There are party rental companies that rent Art Deco backdrops

Art Deco Illuminated Backdrop

or you could make one

MadameX:  If they have hooks or something on the walls that supports the string of lights, you can generally use the same hooks. If you string another line, make sure you can tighten it by inserting a cable tensioner. Once a weight is hung on any cable, it tends to sag.

If you decide to use chair sashes on the back row, and maybe the aisle chairs , I would tie the sash in a manner that will repeat the shape on the wallpaper.

If you do these sashes on the back row and the aisle chairs, I wouldn’t bother with any other aisle decor. The hallmark of art deco was the the repetition of geometric design.

I just thought of something else. Rather than do an aisle runner, you could have a vinyl decal made in an art deco style and place that at the beginning of the aisle.
