GENERAL VIEW OF PARAMOUNT AUDITORIUM - Looking toward the stage with the Wurlitzer console in
concert position. Theatre colors were done in pale sand and gold leaf. Valance was Italian red
velour appliqued in pale green and gold silks. Overdrapes were red and beige silk brocade. The
house curtain was peanut-colored brushed velour appliqued in brown and red velour, and
embroidered with gold lame' and jewels. The ivory and gold console of the Publix #1 Wurlitzer was
on its own elevator. A large orchestra elevator shaft was built for the orchestra platform but
elevating mechanism was never installed.
