The true Dobie seat count is 572, counting the makeout booth in the Egyptian room. Does anybody know when it was first used as a movie theatre? It was originally built as two lecture hall/meeting rooms, then converted to a two-screen theatre somewhere between 1970-72 and later to four screens in the mid 80s. I’m trying to nail down the actual year the Dobie first started running film.
