i believe when the theatre was “twinned” in the 1970s it was actually an add on of 3 screens – whether or not they split up the original auditorium i am not sure – but it was definitely distiguished as the “Gaylynn Terrace” which was the flagship auditorium for “event” releases, then adjacent to the Terrace was the Gaylynn 1, 2, 3 cinemas. if i remember correctly they all shared the same box office.
I believe the windsor closed late 1987/early 1988 – and it then reopened as a nightclub named Xcess or eXcess – which then became the avalon i believe. i remember loving seeing movies at this theatre when i lived in houston in the 1980s. huge, beautiful screen and great presentation – and i remember there being blue velvet everywhere in the interior. unfortunately, they made the balcony a second screen upstairs in the late 1970s – early 1980s.
