Grand Staircase, Fox Theatre (Demolished), Brooklyn, New Yorkfrom the Library of Congress
I’m imagining this with the lights down low, that lamp glowing, people dressed up for the pictures.
From the LoC:

Fox Theatre, 20 Flatbush Avenue & 1 Nevins Street, Brooklyn, Kings County, NY
The Fox Theatre in Brooklyn represented the moving picture theatre in its prodigious phase. With a 4,305 seating capacity, the theatre was one of the largest ever built. Stylistically, it exemplified creative eclecticism, combining East, Indian, Baroque, and Art Deco elements into an imaginative and novel blend. A principal showplace of metropolitan New York City, it was initially a major link in the chain of theatres forged by motion picture mogul William Fox.
