FEATURES
A theatre seating 400 people is planned, to show a half-hour, wide screen, color and stereophonic sound film highlighting Billy Graham's evangelistic crusades.

Surrounding the theatre is an informational display area and various small counseling rooms.

The audience is invited to enter from the front (New York Avenue) approach and are directed to the rear of the site, along pathways leading to the Avenue of the Americas.

Dr. Graham plans occasional personal appearances at the Fair and a possibility exists that he will use the facilities of the William A. Shea Stadium if available - for one or more major gatherings.
