The entrance vestibule is a largely-overlooked very ornately decorated space sandwiched between the entrance doors (on the right) and the main lobby (off to the left). This Mott Studios 1930 view is in the California State Library photo set #001407732.
A bit dressier this time with a photo and some flowers added. The 1930 Mott Studios photo is one of fourteen views in the California State Library's photo set #001387245.
Thanks to Ken McIntyre for his 2009 entrance vestibule detail, appearing on the Facebook page Photos of Los Angeles.
A view of some of the restored ceiling's plasterwork. Thanks to Amy Higgins for the photo from her website www.amyhiggins.com. Her dazzling work on the 2000 Nederlander renovation of the theatre while working with Evergreene Architectural Arts included plaster restoration, decorative painting and gold leaf work. See her Pantages Hollywood page for more illustrations of her work on the project.
