CARIB - i

Miami Beach, Fla.

Easily one of the finest theatres erected during 1950, the 2,200-seat Carib was opened December 22, in one of the cityls most fashionable shopping districts. As such, it commands an excellent admission scale.

In keeping with its name and location, a Carribean theme prevails throughout the theatre. The front bears a huge map of the area done in raised porcelain, the open-air patio-foyer has a tropical atmosphere, and the auditorium is designed with a distinct under-sea motif.

From the large main foyer, where a wide candy bar is situated, an escalator moves upward toward the mezzanine. This is enclosed with glass in the front to afford a full view of the patio-foyer entrance, wherein are found nagstone walls and floors, a huge antique mirror, and flying birds made of plexiglas.

There is a television lounge on the second floor and another set in the foyer.



THE NOVEL ENTRANCE leads into the 40' high tropical patio-layer with rolling glass tool. See Weierlull on lei! wall, mirrors. displays right.
