I worked for Shamrock Holdings in the 80s. Roy Disney was a terrific boss.

I've posted a query on that Cartoon Brew page about the book that contains those vintage photos of the UPA building
---which received scant coverage in Lautner's own book, and none at all in Weintraub's, probably because the building ceased to exist before those publications were conceived. Who knew I'd be thanking Twitter for architectural coverage: those color photos of the interior are priceless.

My family would occasionally venture from Rye to far-off White Plains, to see a movie (um, a film) at the Pix, the nearest "art house." The theater was housed in a Quonset-hut-like structure. A movie (we saw "The Seventh Seal" there, I recall) was always preceded by a UPA cartoon . . . though in the photo here, the featured film was a 1934 comedy with George Arliss, and a Mickey Mouse cartoon. Perhaps this photograph dates to 1935 ?
