The truncated pyramid on top of the entrance block was removed at some time; as was the top part of the architectural embellishment with “1920”. The pair of ground floor windows to the right of the entrance block later became a pair of exit doors to the foyer.

The gable with the lozenge was purely decorative. There was nothing inside to indicate its presence. Strangely, on the inside, there was detailed decorative plasterwork on the ceiling cornices and the pilasters on the north (i.e. far) wall of the auditorium, but none whatsoever on their counterparts inside the south wall when inspected prior to demolition.
