(L-R) Side view of the interior of the Egyptian pre-1955 when the proscenium was removed to put in a wide screen for the road show of Oklahoma -- in glorious Cinemascope! Notice the ornate curtain. View of the ceiling when the columns and proscenium were still intact.

This old postcard of the theatre is much what it looks like today now that the courtyard has been restored to its 1922 appearance.
