Construction photographs show the process of framing and cladding the building, as well as the trucks and equipment used. Interior scaffolding (51103) shows how the frame was supported as it went up. A close-up of the truss detail (51104) shows how the trusses were bolted together. Workmen begin to finish the exterior (51105). The end wall is closed with V-angled boards (51106). Exterior finishing and ventilation ducts are added (51107). People line up at the box office on opening night (51108). The auditorium interior reveals its structural origins; (51109) the trusswork is left exposed in the ceiling. Lee (right) shakes hands with the owner (left) on opening night (51110).
