In doing some research on this theater i have found out that the theater actually opened on October 16th, 1964 and not on November 2nd as listed above. Not a huge deal but thought it would be good to post. I will post a picture of the opening night ad that proclaims the theater as “a new concept in theatre design” and also a blurb about the opening of the theater in the photo section.

The info at the top list the theater as having 700 seats. This is incorrect. The theater has two houses each with 186 seats. So the correct seat count for this theater is 372 seats.

Can anyone confirm that this theater is the building way at the back of the this shopping center? Or is it another building that sits somewhere else on the property? There is a free standing building (currently a 4545 address) that looks like it could have been the theater but it doesn’t jive with the info here. Anyone know?
