Pantages: main floor inner lobby


The inner lobby from house right. The main lobby is off to the left. It's a Mott Studios photo in the California State Library photo set #001387246.  The photo also appears in the Library's photo set #001407732.



A closer look at the house left end of the inner lobby. The light is coming up the house left side aisle. The 1930 Mott Studios photo is in the California State Library photo set #001387246.



A sofa along the inner lobby north wall. That's an auditorium entrance on the right. The 1930 Mott Studios photo is in the California State Library photo set #001387246.



Another sofa view.  Looks like we don't yet have the aisle sign installed. The 1930 Mott Studios photo is in the California State Library photo set #001387246.
 


Yet another sofa near an auditorium entrance.  The 1930 Mott Studios photo is in the California State Library photo set #001387246.



Furniture and deco ornament along the inner lobby's south wall. The 1930 Mott Studios photo is in the California State Library photo set # 001387245.



The house right end of the lobby.  The light on the left is coming up the house right aisle. The 1930 Mott Studios photo is in the California State Library photo set #001387246.



The fountain at the house right end of the inner lobby. The 1930 Mott Studios photo is in the California State Library photo set #001387246.  There's another view of this fountain in the Library's photo set #001387250.



Ornament on the north wall adjacent to an aisle entrance.  Note also the painted detail we see on one of the aisle doors. The Mott Studios photo is in the California State Library photo set #001407732.



A curious view of the area with seats from the main floor that had been removed for a 2017 recarpeting project. Thanks to the Pantages for the photo, one photo that appeared on "Tearing it Up!," their blog post about the project.

A detail of a bit of sidewall ornament. Thanks to Steve Shriver for the  2010 photo on Flickr. It's in his Hollywood Pantages Theatre set of photos he took at the LAHTF "all-about" tour of the theatre.
