A beautiful Art Deco style theatre that opened in 1942, seating 542. The front facade is Art Deco style at its best. In the middle it curves in and is lined with blue tiles and in the center a column of red comes down from the roof to the top of the marquee. Two cream colored columns line the sides of the concave. On each side of the concave the front is a flat surface with orange toned brick fron the top to about two feet from the botton and then is finished in a red polished brcik. In the middle of each side there is a window in glass blocks that has neon that lights at night. The theatre has a free standing box office with a set of wooden doors on each side. The doors each have a half moon glass in them. Small mosiac tiles line the walls around the entrance doors and the box office. They are black with red and green tiles running lines in the black to set it off.
The lobby is very much the same decor as the front of the theatre with the same color schemes. The walls are painted the same colors as the front facade and the terrazzo floors are in large squares to match the walls. The auditorium carries on the same Art Deco style pattern, with color lines and circles painted down the side walls. There is neon lighting aling the corners of the ceilings that shine down on the colorful patterns on the walls. The Marianne Theatre has a small stage and the curtains that cover the screen are of a burnt orange color. The is truly a beautiful theatre of the Art Deco era.
