The cantilevered lean to was the men’s toilets at the rear of the circle. The square aperture above the lean to was the air extractor outlet which connected to two duct lines running above the auditorium and connected to architecturally decorated circular grills in the ceiling.

The door, to the right atop the metal stairs, was an emergency exit from the rear circle. Just visible on the left are the metal emergency exit stairs from the front of the circle.

On the left side of the building, ground level drops steeply and in two directions. Even the front stalls exit on that side required steps.

The window in the corner at the rear of the entrance block was on the stairs to the circle. The other windows, behind the branch of the tree, were onto the manager’s office.
