It will actually probably be a little smaller when the masking is adjusted for the 70mm presentations. Although many people associate 70mm with really big screens, 70mm can be properly projected onto smaller screens if they are masked to the appropriate aspect ratio. The result will be a really sharp image, but it won’t be the same experience as, say watching a good 70mm print at the Ziegfeld.
As HBH noted, the original theater will remain intact; the additional screens that will probably close were created out of basement space.
Here is a picture of the Capitol long before it was given its current appearance.
