The Loren Jo Theatre

San Lorenzo. California

Now under construction in this new village of about 2,000 new individual homes located about 16 miles from Oakland, this 870 seat theatre will cost, will]out ground, approximately $130,000. Completely fire-proof and modern, the stadium design permits foyer, lounge, and service rooms which are seldom

equalled in a theatre of like capacity. Walls are of reinforced concrete; and all auditorium walls and



ceilings are fully covered with acoustical plaster. Heating is by forced hot air from gas-tired furnaces and while air is exhausted from the auditorium, no air-conditioning is deemed necessary in this climate. A crying room is screened off from the auditorium with Thermopane glass.

Across the street from the theatre. a large parking lot is operated by the theatre management.

THE FRONT IS FINISHED WITH CEMENT STUCCO WHICH WILL PERMIT STRIKING COLOR CONTRASTS BY THE PAINT. FLOOD lIGHTING IN THE NAME PYLON AND MARQUEE WILL PRODUCE DRAMATIC NIGHT EFFECTS.
