Description: 

The "Airdome" in town is apparently an early version of the Jefferson movie theater that appears in other Yoknapatawpha fictions (36). The Airdome is outdoors, in "a vacant lot" behind a "big high plank stockade" or fence, and includes a "piano" that plays "loud" music to accompany the films, which were silent at that time (36). Patrons pay ten cents to enter the lot and, presumably while standing rather than sitting, watch what the narrator describes as "the passionate and evanescent posturings where danced and flickered the ephemeral hopes and dreams" (37).
