The projection room, equipped with Century "Model C" Projectors, Northern Electric No. 105 Sound, Motiograph 1 K-W Projection Lamps and Strong Rectifiers by Dominson Sound Equipments, Ltd. of Toronto, is constructed on separate foundations but under the quonset steel roof. The ladder which can be seen at the right side of the front elevation serves as a fire escape for the projectionist. A door on the right side of the building provides an entrance to the furnace room.

The auditorium has been designed with a reverse slope door, and good acoustics are provided through the use of an acoustic plaster treatment directly to the interior of the quonset ribs. The rear wall has been covered with acoustic tiles and painted sky blue to match the auditorium color tone. Work lights have been installed in the ceiling arch.
