A large hipped gablet roof, flowing into and repeated in the portico, dominates this building. The portico, with its chamfered posts and diamond-pattern railing, utilizes the same forms as those at Bay View Home. Serving as a community hall and movie theater, the interior features an auditorium with tiers of seats extending up to a balcony, which originally separated the patients from their caretakers. The exterior steps provided access to the balcony.
