This was the shape of the CinemaScope screen at the Rex Theatre. The two bottom corners were cut out to make room for the fire exit doors. When a flat picture was shown, panels were closed to mask the picture, and you got the whole image. But on a scope picture, the panels were opened and the two bottom corners were missing. The Grand Theatre in Richmond also had this type of screen.
