Here’s an incredible series of 3D photos of the auditorium. As you can see it was painted black from when it was a disco, and the chairs were removed. But it’s still there waiting.
To be clear, this WAS a former movie palace until 1978 when it was irreversably modified into 4 cinemas. The auditorium worth saving has been gone for over 30 years. The lobby and foyer are the only remaining areas with any historical authenticity and they are keeping that anyway. The showcase cinema whilst nice, is just a 1980’s cinema with some plasterwork cut and pasted in, a sad reminder of what was at the time, considered a good compromise.
Ah yes, fox sprockets. You probably in reality only needed to replace 2 sprockets and the intermittent for optical sound. Take the guide pins out of your splicer, and if you had manual rewinds, nothing.
