From 2010 photos of the Granada Theatre Here and Here in Lawrence.

Original facades of the Lawrence, KS, GRANADA Theatre and Oklahoma City’s PLAZA Theatre are somewhat identical. Boller Bros designed both of these movie houses.
Seating capacity for each cinema was around 900, though I doubt the interiors matched as the Plaza did not have a balcony.

The interior is basically as follows. There is about a 5 foot deep pit in front of the stage, which is connected to stairs to the upper level. There is a circular bar on the left corner, and band merchandise is on the right. The floor of the upper floor level is slanted slightly.
As the description above said, there WAS a balcony. It is more like a small platform now, with restrooms on the right. I would say its like 10 wide and 30 feet long. The concessions on the lower level is now a bar. There is still some decor by the old exits, but thats about it. It is still a good place for shows.

This theatre originally seated 920. According to the Boller Brothers Record of work this theatre is attributed to the Los Angeles office.
