The downstairs theater was broken into two or three classrooms, so as Wannagitawt said, only the upstairs screen is still in use.

The conference center now has one screen, in what was the upstairs theater. At the Playhouse, one would enter at street level, pass a common concession counter, and then go either downstairs or upstairs to the desired theater (this was long before the days of ADA requirements, of course; no elevator either way!).
