The theatre had one central seating section with aisles on either side. There was one fire exit off each of the side aisles. The floor was sloped. There was no balcony. According to a former employee, whose father managed the theatre for a time, there were
probably 20-25 seats across in each of the rows.

There is a picture of the theatre in George Washington Tiernan’s book, “Kings Park – A Pictoral History – 1870-1960”. There is no current web link available.
