Yes, the original Granada suffered major damage during a fire in the early fifties. The roof caved in and the only things left standing were the four walls. When rebuilt it had stadium type seating, at least for the rear of the theater, which was eventually to become theater #2. I remember that fire well as Cecil B. DeMille’s “Greatest Show on Earth” was playing there at the time and I never got to see it.
