Imperial Picture House
A frame from a video of the demolition captures a view of the balcony to the left of the proscenium where musicians played in the days of silent films.
The proscenium looks unaltered, suggesting that the Imperial made no concession to the requirements of Cinemascope (and similar anamorphic processes) aspect ratios. The screen width could have been barely 30% of the auditorium’s width.
