In 1971, The Steel pier Music Hall had Simplex E-7 projectors & Ashcraft Super High arc lamps. Hall & Connell spot lights. The screen was on a “fly”. The two man projection shift operators were Ed Oliver, & Goerge Innis.

In the Casino Theatre, were a pair of Simplex XL projectors & Peerless Magnarc carbon arc lamps. The operators were Lou Glendenon, & Frank Bernato. I probably messed up their names.

Behind the Casino projection booth was a room with metal letters that ran on a convayor belt. They brushed against electified feelers for the giant marquee chaser sign.

A better, hi-res scan of the postcard showing the interior can be seen in my flickr stream: View link
As my card wasn’t posted, I can’t say from when it was, but I bet the photo was taken around the opening as is so often the case with postcards promoting a theater.

What is behind the facade now? Nothing, or part of the casino?

The Warner was a hot dog place in the 1980s called Boardwalk Rogers:
