I was involved in the setup, and alignment of the initial theaters in 1982. It was my first experience with 70mm, but as a television broadcast engineer I was not phased. At opening the large dome was a single theater, with a 35/70 projector. I don’t recall which of the other domes had the other 35/70. The sad part was the projection window for the dome on the far left was not properly aligned with the screen, causing a bit of keystoning, and the image was always out of focus on both sides of the screen. Whenever I went into that dome to view a movie, I was always disappointed for that reason. I am not sure if the building was ever corrected for this error in the building design.
