Talk about raked seating - going up anyone !

The building is circular with theatres forming pie shaped wedges. The largest theatres 9 & 10 have picture sizes 64 Ft. wide and 28 Ft. high

These screens are curved cineramma style and tilted back at approximately 4 degrees. The raked seating provide the patrons with excellent viewing from anywhere in the cinema.

As the picture to above shows no walls the project was under construction then.

Ash-Stevenson Inc. provided all front ends and in cinemas 9 & 10 full contour lift curtains

Famous Players can be proud of this type of Cinema, for it leads the way of the future in Theatres.

No heads in the way here and this isn't one of the big houses - best viewing seats are in the middle half way up, and I mean the BEST

Ample leg room - comfortable seats
