My understanding is that the 70MM projector would need new aperture plates & a new mag sound head in order to be up and running again.

I don’t get how tiny 60-100 seat auditoriums are supposed to lure people away from home theatres. The screens in those auditoriums are going to be how big? 10 feet wide? 20 feet? I’ll stay home, thank you.

Papibear, the main auditorium was not twinned or otherwise reduced in size. (A few seats were removed for ADA compliance.) The new auditioriums were built alongside the existing structure, and have allowed the theatre to thrive in the modern film booking environment.

The Main House offers the biggest screen and best presentation of any cinema I know. (Though I’d love to hear about others that are equal or better!)

They still book the “biggest” releases and even ran a fantastic revival series in 2006 on Wed PM and Sat AM.

The Continental is a true Cinema Treasure.
