That extremely heavy burgandy curtain

goes by many names & descriptions

House Curtain Grand Drape Front Cloth

& can be a traveler a dead lift or

a contour drape (like Radio City)

It is ALMOST always hand operated

A fireproof curtain originally of

asbestos but now of special synthetic

runs downstage of it & rides in side

tracks know as a smoke pocket

In the UK it's called "The Iron"

& must be brought in with public

in attendance during the interval
