Wow quite a post art deco design. Any pics of the proscenium? This place has gone through lots of changes I gather.
This theatre was Skouras-ized..Great era back then.
It would be nice to see the interior before the Skouras redo. The elaborate Coliseum Theatre in Seattle was also Skouras-ized in 1950. It went from a unique combo of middle eastern and asian styles to that more mundane post art deco 1940’s look. Much of the truly elaborate artistic details lost forever. The original plaster work in these old movie palaces were created by true artists. I knew a few.
