The managers office is located directly off the foyer to the right. Men's and ladies rest rooms are to the left. The foyer curves around the rest room area to space opening through an arch, for the rest room area screens the auditorium. The auditorium ceiling has a beige field, accentuated by a lower leveled portion in cocoa brown, which is outlined in burnt orange neon tubing. Burnt orange recessed lights, in rectangular coffers, are centered in a straight line on the higher level. The recesses also suspend air diffusers.

A gray wainscoting forms the base of the auditorium wall treatment. Toward the back of the auditorium, the upper halves of the side walls are covered with peacock blue glass fabric, relieved with white geometric designs. The middle walls are of red grape-colored glass fabric, with a sprinkling of four-pointed stars serving as a background for two large oyster-white plaster moons. To the left and right of the stage, two large French baroque cast plaster ornaments are mounted against cocoa brown backgrounds set against warm beige fields. These ornamental panels sustain the colors used in the ceiling.
