The Reed was very “Art Deco” in design. Even the stairway to the projection room was curved (like the lobby wall). The booth ran Simplex E-7s with Peerless Magnarc Lamps. The Reed booth was the long time job of Sam Dale, Business Agent of IATSE Local 619, Mixed local Alexandria Virginia. The Union telephone was installed in the Reed booth, it was the closest thing there was to a Union office, and Mr Dale conducted business there until the late 60s.
