Just received this information from the unidentified donor of the restored curtain… “When the proscenium was widened (to accommodate Cinemascope projection), the height was lowered considerably so as to take a new steel beam to cross the greater width. A completely new, and very plain, blue curtain was installed, without the old valance or any decoration on it at all.” That curtain remained until the 1990s. The new proscenium and curtain have reinstated the original proportions of 1928.
