THERE IS A RICHNESS OF DECORATION in this auditorium that completely transports the spectators into a new world. lnterest naturally gravitates toward the screen because of the two murals on each side above the forward exit doors which carry out the Colonial theme. Light and dark areas of the stage curtains and draperies create a dramatic effect at the ultimate center of interest. Notice that the pattern of the carpets presents another rich design to complement the design of the ceiling. And in the standee area lush flowers almost overwhelm the senses. Vertical sections



in the balcony are treated with fabric tufted in large squares. The integration of auditorium lighting with wall decoration is especially ingenious and. as a result. the lights do not clash with the prevailing decor. At the rear of the room there is no abrupt barrier between standees and spectators -standees may watch the show with little difficulty. The two columns at each end of the central standee area continue through the balcony above. On the same level with the proiection room and at each side of the auditorium are the cry room and the Hunt Room for private parties.
