THE ENTRANCE DOORS are solid slabs of selected birch. with oblong vision panels and specially designed aluminum push-bats. The terra cotta tront is by Federal Seaboard Terra Cotta; lobby mats by Perto Mat and Rubber Company; steel trusses, bar joists, and deck by Macomber.

THE ENTRANCE LOBBY sweeps in a gracelul curve toward the lelt, to a second foyer, entered through a series at six additional slab doors. Passing through these doors a room is entered in which the ceiling has a mild peach tield ot slate-blue dropped panel motif over three-fourths the area.

AT THEVSOUTH END OF THE SECOND FOYER, the plaster is curved gracetully on the edges of a large recessed, lZ-toot square, concealing neon edge lighting emphasizing a mural of semi-tormal pastoral motit, which picks up the symbolism of the black-and-silver tree design on the facade.

TO THE RIGHT ol the entrance door, a completely equipped conlection and popcorn stand is provided for the convenience of the patrons. The color scheme of the entrance lobby is a gray-green. with a wine-colored treatment 0! the dropped ceiling which features an indirect lighting trough.

THE WEST ELEVATION is featured by a series of huge convex flutes which run from floor to ceiling. The wainscot at this room is at the same blue

of the dropped ceiling, topped by a gold line. The remainder ot the wall area is treated in a warm gray extending all the way up to the ceiling.
