This laughing man's face, reminiscent of Bacchus, is located under the right corner of the upper left window. It is one of four sculpted faces under two window sills on the Everyman Theatre facade, 315 West Fayette Street. The theater was called the Empire when it opened in 1911. It was gutted for a garage before being rebuilt as the Town, a first-run theater from 1947 to 1990. The Everyman repertory company revived the theater in 2013.

This woman, one of two muses reclining in the spandrels above the entrance to the Arch Social Club at 2426 Pennsylvania Avenue, is on the left, facing the theater.

The theater changed names several times before it was bought by the Arch Social Club in 1972.

This man's face, adorned with horns, is the left one of a pair that smile down on 508 North Howard Street, above two standing female statues in niches. When the theater opened in 1904, it was called the Auditorium. It was operated as the Mayfair Theater from 1941 to 1986. Under city ownership after it closed, the roof caved in. The rear of the venerable theater was demolished in 2016. The site awaits redevelopment by Zahlco Companies.
