The Troy Theatre Troy. Ohio

Pfister and Maier, who operate the Mayflower in this live Ohio city, will build this additional lOOO-seat theatre on an 82 by 160 feet lot at the edge of the expanding downtown business district. Of semi-fireproof construction, it is the objective to make this theater the city leader, with complete air-conditioning and all modern accommodations.

The front elevation is featured by glass doors and a huge glass semi-opaque fenestration of fluted green tinted glass 15 feet wide by 35 feet tall. The panel is capped by a massive projecting ledge on which the word uTroyJ, with triple neon in 3-foot-deep channel

letters, is superimposed.

Among other features, the popcorn and concession stand opens on the street because of the traffic available for transient sales. Over the ticket booth a semiopaque glass fluted panel, in a very unusual way, ties the ticket office into two general ideas of the fluted glass tower.

A sizable 6-track marquee will have a large letter MI"7 in neon surmount its apex.

Six large extruded aluminum poster frames are worked into the overall design. The entrance doors are proposed to be of structural glass, with the inter NOTE THE DECORATIVE INSET OVER THE DISPLAY FRAMES AT THE LEFT OF THE FACADE, AND THE MANNER IN WHICH IT OFFSETS THE SIMPLE TREATMENT. ALSO NOTE THE EXTERIOR SALES WINDOW OF THE CANDY BAR.
