Information for this tour was contributed by John Stewart.

The actual theater is behind the front of the building. The second floor had office spaces in it while the top floor was a ballroom. One of the shots has a skylight in the ceiling. It is between the 3 story building in front and the actual theater behind. Behind the stage is a loading platform that is adjacent to a railroad track. Shows had to be loaded from a rail car to this platform. Now days, shows are carried in from the front. During one of the remodeling jobs, they removed some of the paint on the walls in areas to expose some of the old painted decorations that used to cover the walls. Seems to me there was more than one layer of paint behind the current one.
