When twinned, the circle (forum 2) was named the Rapallo. It was so steep that one almost needed oxygen to reach the last row!

I’m very interested in the comments about the screen. The Cinephone theater in Birmingham England had one which must have been installed in the mid 1950’s as it was in the CinemaScopE aspect ratio. It gave one the impression that it was floating in space!
