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 simple interior design illustrates the Streamline theme with the use of painted curves on the walls and semicircular ceiling panels that conceal lights, creating indirect lighting of the ceiling. Instead of a balcony, the rear of the auditorium is raked and separated from the main floor by a low partition and steps.
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).
The stage opening is set back deeply into a much larger proscenium arch. The sloping walls and ceiling surrounding the stage are heavily ornamented in gilt or silver plaster relief; the forms are the abstracted designs from nature and geometry typical of Art Deco design. The stage curtain was designed in separate panels that could be raised individually, adjusting the space to stage productions or motion picture screenings and at the same time introducing a dramatic design element.
