Sleek banquettes upholstered in a striped fabric are set into the walls of the foyer. An overhanging cornice creates the opportunity to conceal indirect lighting and reduces the space to a human scale. A narrow screen pierced by square, framed cut-outs is located at the end of the banquette, enhancing a sense of enclosure.
As the theatre was a re-use of an earlier building, Lee had little opportunity for interior structural changes. For the foyer, Lee chose modern, rectangular lines. Paneled auditorium doors and the simplified Greek key design painted on the upper wall add interest..
The simple interior of the auditorium is enlivened by gently undulating walls that are abruptly interrupted by angular partitions that frame and enclose a pair of gigantic paintings of flowers flanking the proscenium.
The realized building is less dramatic, partially because it is sited on a prosaic small-town street. Nevertheless retains the portholes and swooping form of the roofline. The pylon sign and the curving marquee command the corner site.
