THE REX. while lo years old. was recently remodeled and is now comtortably modern. The tluted wall panels with heavy ornamental capped dado are painted in neutral shades and depend on the trough lighting tor changeable color and light beam decoration. Acoustics are excellent. A series at sott tlowing repeat steps feature the ceiling: and it will he noted that due to the eccentricities oi the existing structure. it has been necessary to use an unusual oil-balance proscenium. The ornamental panel at the right of the proscenium arch counter balances this oddity. and a seldom-seen island stage apron provides exits at the sides at the stage. Below is a corner at the layer to the hex showing the theatre entrance arch and the tastetully arranged drinking tountain and turnishings.
