lITTlE CARNEGIE New York, N. Y.

Completely rebuilt from a 25-year-old theatre of the same name, the Little Carnegie has been enlarged to include an adjoining building.

The entrance, faced with blueepearl granite, has been heightened to two stories and leads into a vestibule of zebrina marble with a terrazzo floor.

Commodious lounge areas, an art gallery, a television-music room, and rest rooms adjoin the lobby foyer. Connected to the main lounge is a specially built pantry and kitchen.

Unusually wide seats, 22 and 23 inches in width, have been installed in a staggered arrangement to insure best possible visibility despite a resultant loss of seating capacity.

Year-round ventilationecooling and heatingeis provided through one system.

The proscenium apparently extends around to the side walls, an effect created by graceful cast plaster scrollwork.
