THE LOBBY (upper left) of the Town Theatre is separated from the outer layer by three pairs of solid glass doors over which is one of the eight decorative pieces designed by Oscar Bruno Bach, tamed art-metal artist. On either side of the entrance are "gardens," which "plant compositions," according to the artist. are intended to express the concept of growth rather than to represent actual plants indigenous to Baltimore.

THE STANDEE AREA (upper right) is entirely care peted, with a small figured design in which the predominating colors are Caribbean blues and greens, similar to the colors used on the walls. The ceiling and under'portion oi the balcony are done in several shades of pink, "lrom bud-pink through to the mulberries, with perhaps a touch here and there of Dubonnet." Hardly a "standard" color is employed throughout the theatre.

THE LADIES' POWDER ROOM (left) has six make-up tables arranged in a quarter circle, with natural overhead light. The serpentine wall has the same gray-black wallpaper with a huge iloral design as used in the mezzanine. The interior fixtures are beige tile and gray marble. Each make-up table has its own compartment. There are two lounges tor women and two for men, one at each on each seating level.

MEZZRNINE LOUNGE (bottom) had more at the Bach "gardens" in metal. all, however, en. hanced by cacti and other growing plants. The mezzanine is shaped with serpentine walls, with the indirect lighting copings following the curvature of the walls. All furniture is made to fit into the natural recesses of the area. Besides the theatre's indirect lighting, there are panels 0! back-lighted corrugated glass in several spots.
