A walkway stretches across the bottom edge on a slight angle. Another walkway intersects it and stretches back towards the right. Dozens of Loyola University of Los Angeles students walk along these walkways towards camera. They all don caps and gowns as they file towards the entrance of the Carthay Circle Theatre at left. As the line nears the camera, it veers towards the left. Along the left edge in the near distance, the side of the Carthay Circle Theatre enters frame and stretches back. Balconies and arched windows line the side of the building. Flagpoles rise from a landscaped lawn that extends between the theater and the walkways. In the distance, cars park along a street and more graduates join the line. A large building stands in the background at right.
