The Triangular Perry

Motion Picture Herald, February 4, 1939:

“Effective utilization of a triangular building plot is exemplified by the Harris Company’s new Perry theatre, John Eberson, architect. The box office is set at the crossing of three Pittsburgh streets; the brilliant outdoor lighting and conspicuous attraction board are visible in three directions.

“The vestibule flooring reduplicates the triangular motive in four-color terrazzo…Vestibule sides are brown porcelain enamel with ivory flutings; the doors red Formica with aluminum and chrome fittings.”
