Band members and a procession of vehicles drive through downtown Los Angeles on the way to City Hall in celebration of Aimee Semple McPherson's 25th year of ministry service. The parade ended at the City Hall steps where McPherson greeted approximately 5000 people and the Mayor. Aimee Semple McPherson was a Los Angeles evangelist in the 1920s and 1930s who founded the Foursquare Church and Angelus Temple.
The auditorium walls curve towards the screen, interrupted in each side by a scalloped wall edge where the screen curtain, lit by indirect lighting begins. The effect is further enhanced by the continuation of a vine pattern on the walls in cut-out form over the front exit openings. Globes of light at the center of grilles concealing the ceiling fans neatly combine two functions. The ceiling is further decorated by a scalloped design painted around the light and ventilation fixtures.
The drawing style, with its curving frame, the simple swept lines of the box office, and the abstract lines on the lobby floor, which use motifs drawn from contemporary painting, all bespeak the era of the 1930s and 1940s.
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.
