THE AUDITORIUM has two seating levels. Here (above), looking toward the screen from the loge area. are seen the two hand-painted murals on either side at the stage. The panels, each 20 by 20 feet, were done by Novelty Scenic Studios. which also tarnished and installed the other decorating and stage settings. The use of special tluorescent material, under the influence at black light, brings out the composition at the murals in darkness. The theatre chairs were manutactured by International Seat Company, upholstered in coral mohair, adding to the decoration.

THE PROJECTION ROOM (right) has been equipped with projector machines and Enarc proiection arc lamps by the Brenkert Light Proiection Company and a sound system by the Radio Corporation at America. The booth equipment (as well as the auditorium and loge chairs) was turnished and installed by the Capitol Theatre Supply Company. Further credits are not available, but it can be supposed that other items of the RCA dealer's stock would have tound their way into the various parts of the house dubbed "the theatre oi distinction and comfort."
