JAX JR. Littlefon, N. H.

Replacing a theatre which was destroyed by fire in 1949, the Jax Jr. occupies the major part of a business building in the heart of a farming community.

Its front is attractively faced with native vari-colored slate llagstone, and the marquee soft-it is finished in tinted California stucco. The foyer and crossover aisle are resplendent in rich, natural finish gum and oak veneers, and feature subdued lighting from cold-cathode tubeilluminated ceiling coves. A recessed refreshment stand is located in the crossover aisle directly to the rear of the auditorium.

In the auditorium, dividing corrugated pilasters separate panels of coral-tinted acoustical plaster walls. These pilasters mark the steps of the soft turquoisecolored ceiling. The projection booth has been designed to hold large-screen television equipment. The stage area is complete with orchestra pit, dressing rooms, toilet facilities and other necessities for live shows. The theatre is equipped throughout with a sprinkler system.
