Tesla and Ada in the lobby.

Rose enters via elevator and is shocked at the size of the lobby, she continues on and sees a vision from the past of her sister with Nikola Tesla walking to the theatre itself.

The lobby has no apparent structural damage and is in overall good shape, with some toppled furniture and broken glassware, but no dead bodies anywhere. Passengers have barricaded the grand staircase's paths going to the lower floor and the lobby's balcony with furniture, meaning the only way to go is the theatre. There is a Pneumatic Station and a bar, seating areas, and two Rail Stations. Posters for the various plays and performances can be seen on the walls.
