I saw a few 70mm big screen movies there. Sound and picture were very impressive. There was a small wall or two of Tiki decor and colored lighting by the doors into the auditorium. Modest amount of furniture and decor in the lobby. The signage was good too. The full stage was used occasionally by the auto companies for dealer meetings and roll outs of new car models for them. It was a far more elaborate building than most suuburban theatres of 1960's. There are a few photos of interior and other details under the later name of George Burns Theatre at Cinema Treasures. http://cinematreasures.org/theaters/3319
