Basketball Court

One of my favorite rooms outside of the white house is the Basketball Court. The team there is callled the Marines or the Wounded Warriors. The Basketball court is located outside of the white house. When your there you can play basketball and when you do it builds your energy and strength. Some objects in the court are some chairs, A basketball, a basketball net, and a fence around the whole court.

Family Theater

Another one of my favorite rooms is inside of the white house which is the Family Theater. The family theater was converted from a long cloakroom in 1942 when the current East wing building was constructed. They built the family theater in 1902 and it is located inside of the white house by the east wing building. When you are there you can watch movies the first movie that was shown was The Birth Of A Nation. In the room there are nice, comfortable, red, chairs and almost everything in the room is red.
