Chairs are provided throughout the building, including the still-intact theatre boxes, where customers can dip into books before purchase, and there is a café on the back of what was once the stage.

The ceiling, the ornate carvings, the crimson stage curtains, the auditorium lighting and many architectural details remain! A must visit for all book and architecture lovers.
