The seats on the ground floor are equipped with earphones, through which one can hear a simultaneous translation of a speech in any one of 12 different languages. Every two seats share a loudspeaker and every four seats a microphone for extemporaneous speeches. On the ceiling are 500 star lights with an enormous red star in the centre. Seventy light beams radiate in all directions enclosed by a ring of 40sunflower petals, which in turn is skirted by three layers of hidden lights in the form of expanding waves. This beautiful pattern symbolizes the close unity of the people of the whole country around the Party in their forward march from victory to victory. The ones that have no light are ventilation holes.
