FINE ARTS New York, N. Y.

Believed to be the first theatre in the country designed specifically for motion picture and television presentation, the Fine Arts was opened on the site of the old Cafe Society Uptown.

Small in size, and operating on an art policy, the Fine Arts is accordingly intimate in character. The auditorium has dove gray walls and an eggplant-colored ceiling, with the proscenium curtain a brilliant gold.

An important architectural feature of the theatre is its unusually generous waiting space provided in both orchestra and mezzanine. Since the building plot is extremely small, a series of underground exits have been worked out to meet provisions of local codes.

To eliminate sound distortion, the ceiling of the auditorium has been

acoustically treated.
