The El Capitan Standee Area, 1926

A look at the rear of the main floor in 1926. In the back is the open standee area and the east stairs to the balcony.

The standee area later got walled off to make an enclosed lobby.  The photo is in the Los Angeles Public Library collection. Click on it for a larger view or see the full size view on the LAPL website.

This is one of 3 vintage views just added to El Capitan auditorium web page.
