This projected theatre is situated at the end of' a row of shops, from which it is separated by a covered passage through to the parking area that serves the entire development. Part of this covered passage becomes an outdoor lobby for the theatre, incorporating ticket booth, seats for waiting, and showcase provision for posters of coming attractions. Inside provision is made for ticket buyers to stand in line without stringing out on the sidewalk. The lounge is separated from the heavy exiting traffic.

It is planned to mount changeable silhouette letters directly on the glass block wall used on the

street facade of the lobby; with the light and moving pattern of the people inside forming a colorful advertising background. The entire opposite wall, bei tween structural glass doors to the outer lobby and; auditorium, will be covered with flesh-tinted, full- 7 length mirrors to add inviting spaciousness to what should be a most popular area of the theatre. Completely unconventional in its approach to the theatre design problem, the wide and varied use of structural glass is the dominant interest of this theatre. Rich in idea value, this proposed structure can bear close inspection by the interested new builder.
