Food was taken through to the lounge where you could lay on chaises and cushions to watch the performances or just relax with friends in decadent surroundings. The ticket price included a meal.
Coffee? Teas…. Or perhaps some wine or other drinks to accompany your dinner. There was also a pay bar stocked with all manner of tipples.
