Indiana Theatre and Ballroom

Some theatres we visit are not in their original condition. The Indiana is one of these; divided into several venues and offices, much of the plasterwork survives. In this photo, Conclave attendees crowd around the rormer upper proscenium in the present Cabaret; you can appreciate how massive and detailed decoration had to be to be seen from the seating below. Upstairs is the very impressive Roof Ballroom, operated by a man who once ran a sandwich shop in the building; his parents met in the ballroom.
