What a terrific photo. I would love to know where this was found. It shows that the Moderne marquee which is still on the theatre was not installed at the same time as the vertical sign which still remains there today. It also shows a late 20s/early 30s vertical sign which was not on the theatre when it opened. Also, the quality of sunlight on the building makes it possible to see more detail on two of the four faces of the goddess of Hathor at the base of the flagpole. Thank you, jeterga, for sharing these! Now, if someone can just find photos of the original 20s Egyptian interior decorative scheme, that will be an even bigger “Holy Grail.”
