THE AUDITORIUM (above) is a striking departure from the regular run at American theatre, by virtue oi the decorative scheme based predominantly on the use of drapes and hangmgs not only tor the proscenium, but for the side walls as well. Lack of data prevents a lull description of the color scheme, but even in Black and white the effect is sumptuousness. Note. toe. the use of dark colored backs on every other chair with the padding the other color.

THE LADIES' LOUNGE (right) is plainly decorated, but comfortably furnished, with well padded lounge chairs and, for milady's make-up. kidney tables each with mirror of ample proportions. A large mirror. extending tromtlloor to ceiling. serves not only as a device to make the room seem iust so much larger. but alsoand, perhaps, more soeas a full-length mirror tor the final checking of ensembles belore leaving the theatre. The carpet is wall to wall.

THE PROMENADE (below), on an assumption based on the outside view, occupies the area above the foyer. Besides brilliant cove lightin . the area is also illuminated through glass-bloc windows during the daytime hours. The gentle rise of the staircase, no less than the expansiveness of the promenade. is iurther eloquent testimony oi the appreciation of magniticence and comlort iound so lrequently in Latin American theatres but otten lacking in the U. S. theatres.
