A unique “feature” at this building that I have never seen at another theater - due to the decision to split such a small building into 4 auditoriums, no space could be spared for the hallway that usually employs both distance and angling to separates a theater’s lobby entrance from the auditorium doors. You can actually open the door from the inside of the auditorium and look straight out the glass front doors of the building, complete with sunlight during the day or the parking lot lights/car headlights at night shining directly onto the screen! To mitigate this, each auditorium has a blackout curtain in front of the door that has to be pushed aside as you enter and exit.

The two auditoriums whose walls comprise the external side walls of the building also have WINDOWS, another thing I have never seen in a movie theater. These are also blacked out.
