Somewhere... I am almost certain... Michael listed all the remaining glass doors for us.

Michael, can you help? This could enable us to eliminate them, one by one.

I am surprised though that, in this photo, the door handles look "golden", when I remember them as being "silver".

Isabelle, Hi!

There is a list iof the heavy glass doors in post #7 up at the top of this topic!
Looks as if the handles were both 'silver' as well as bronze. :)

Rob - Are you here... or there?!

If you look very closely, behind you (in reflection) is the lighted top of the "proscenium" of the Grand lounge.

These door handles are great !  Interestingly, the building I worked in at Connecticut College, Cummings Arts Center, has outside doors very much like these with the same style door handles, only rotated 90 degrees.
 They are a polished brass.  Cummings Arts Center was built in 1969 in a brutalist style popular at the time, but quite attractive for that style of architecture.

I love brutalist architecture. There's something so unique about the style.
Enjoyer of classic cinema, literature, and music.
