Columbus, Ohio

Built as part of an extensive shopping center, this tenth Academy theatre, designed to serve a suburban residential section of Columbus, is of Colonial design.

Constructed of natural local limestone and painted brick, with a coping of Indiana limestone, a copper-roofed cupola topped by a Colonial weather vane adorns its green tile roof. The structural glass

boxof'lice is also green, and green shutters trim the three display frames. Entrance doors are bone-white to carry out the architectural style.

The entrance lobby is Hoored with Vermont slate fiagstone in variegated shades of gray, blue, and wine and has a Wainscot of wine topped by bone-white paneled upper walls. Centered in one wall, and accented by a special rubber mat, is


a completely equipped confection bar in white against a wine colored recess.

Soft delicate coloring distinguishes the main auditorium. Spun glass fabric in blue and silver plume pattern covers the rear wall, while the same fabric in a gray pattern on the side walls is relieved by four panels of a rose leaf pattern. The auditorium Wainscot is Williamsburg blue and the ceiling is peach. Pleated gray spun glass fabric is used to good effect in either side of the proscenium and a golden mellow plush curtain completes the stage.

Three imposing plaster domes of unusual size and painted deep blue with a gray-green ornamental fretwork border highlighted by white and gold, are the ceiling features. Gray slide-back chairs are upholstered in blue. Carpeting is deep-rose with an ebony design.

Due to the shopping center, large parking facilities are available.
