CLYDE Fort Wayne, Ind.

A glamorous theatre forming the nucleus of a new neighborhood shopping center, the Clyde is designed along somewhat restrained lines which should ttwearli better over the next 15 or 20 years than the more extreme types of modern design.

The upper portion of the'exterior is a simple concave surface formed of convex nutes in painted, monolithic concrete. The principal feature of the front is a freestanding pylon which tigrowsly through the roof of the canopy formed by triplefaced poster frames.

The main lobby leads through some low-ceilinged passages nanked by attractive niches, into a large, semi-circular foyer.

The auditorium ceiling slants upward toward the screen to direct attention to the proscenium and create a natural gravitation toward the stage.
