More Arabian photos!

A view of the box office:

A return to the vibrant colors of the twenties - notice the Egyptian scarab:

The lobby is still being repainted. Check out the great light fixture:

Another scarab detail, with a vibrant red wall behind:

The view from the lift, which, I am telling you, was WAY UP THERE:

As you can see, all of the chairs have been removed and will be replaced. As it happens, you can help renovate the theater by "sponsoring" a new cushy chair; click here for details.

This little theater is a terrific example of 20s theater architecture and an important piece of Laurel history. I look forward to visiting in November when the renovation is complete.
