The Ute

Rifle, Colorado

Located one block north of the main business street and designed as a firstrun commanding a 50 cent admission scale, the building is of fireproof construction with brick pilasters, steel bowstring trusses, concrete floor and clay tile curtain-walls.

Below the large marquee, peach vitrolite glass trimmed with dark red and set off with chromium door hardware and trim on the boxoffice and display frames, projects a modern feeling. A private door to the living quarters is at the extreme right of the building.

A large hour-glass curved foyer provides large spaCes for the popcorn and confection area, the managers office, and the ladies' and menls lounge and toilet rooms, advantageously situated on the main floor. Lime walls with a darker green dado are ornamented with a stencil trim in Indian pattern complementing the carpeting of Indian design in shades of red, blue, green, gold and black.

The walls and ceiling of the auditorium are tinted in rose, with a blue tinted dropped ceiling panel containing the air diffusers and rose and green neon indirect lighting channels. Edgelighted plastic ornamental fixture panels provide a dimmed decorative effect during the show. Large modern painted designs accentuate the proscenium opening where a gold satin screen curtain is framed in royal blue valance and side drapes with gold fringe.

A sound-proof cry-room off the ladies'

lounge is fitted with a six-feet high plate glass window commanding good vision, and is equipped with six regular theatre chairs, air conditioning, and a manually adjusted speaker volume control. In this room is also provided space for wheelchairs with a special ramp by which they can be moved safely in and out of the theatre with a minimum effort.

Both the ladiesland menls lounge rooms are equipped with germicidal lamps for greater patron safety. Metal backed
