The Embassy Theatre (

FORMERLY MOZART THEATRE)

\Vashinglon. I): C.



To be erected at the corner of Columbia Road and Mozart Place in the northwest section of the Nations Capital, this theatre originally appeared in trade notices as the Mozart, but has been changed since to the Embassy. When erected, it will be the flagship of, and house the home offices of, the growing Valley Enterprises, Inc., independent circuit and provisions will be noted in the plans for the circuit ofiices, reached by a private stairway from the street.

Completely fire-proof and modern to the last detail of construction and equipment, the building will be completely airconditioned. The seating capacity

will be approximately 1,000, with 660 on the orchestra floor and 277 in the balcony. Wide spacing between seats and superior seating comfort will be one of the special features.

In keeping with the mode set by the federal buildings of that city, the front will be of stone in a design of dignity and simplicity. Being in Washington, the marquee will carry no program boards.

Of special interest is the manner in which such a well-balanced plan has been worked into an odd shaped plot with such a minimum loss of valuable space. Detailed specifications are now being written.

THE VERY SIMPLICITY OF THE ISLAND BOX OFFICE, PLAIN lETTERlESS MARQUEE, AND FLUTED COLUMNS OF THE FACADE, PRODUCE A DIGNITY AND QUAlITY BACKGROUND THAT WILL ADMIRABLY FIT ITS I.OCATION.
