'The theater itself is replete with artistic interpretations of the classic Grecian architecture and mythology of the native land of him in whose honor it was built.'  Sons of Demetrius P. Latchis built theater in honor of their father.'The sons of Demetrius P. Latchis built this 1,200-seat theater as a monument to their late father.  Architect Haynes hired internationally renowned artist Louis Jambor, a Hungarian immigrant, to paint murals based on Greek mythology.  The Reformer, a local newspaper, reported that the artist had even painted his subjects following a Greek method, 'using a combination of beeswax that fixes the colors and at the same time gives them the appearance of being watercolors.'  The better-known gods in the murals, such as Apollo and Bacchus, are joined by seated figures of more obscure characters including Thalia, the muse of drama, seated at stage left.  The lobby of the Latchis has a lighted semicircular fountain supervised by Hebe, the goddess of youth and sprring.  The zodiacal pattern that once dominated the lobby floor is gone, survived by illustrated constellations painted on the ceiling inside the auditorium.  THe plaster buildings along the side walls are meant to suggest the Acropolis rising above the 'agora' of the orchestra floor.  Restoration of this fine late picture palace was in process in 1986.
