Inside the auditorium seating was provided in stalls and circle levels. There were decorative grilles on each side of the 29 feet wide proscenium. It was equipped with a Western Electric(WE) sound system.

In the ‘60s this was the Players No.6 gift showroom where we exchanged the cigarette coupons for stuff (to make us feel good about smoking!)
