Yes, the other two were smaller because they split the original second theater into two.

I loved this theater. While going to UF in the late 80s, our science fiction club did promotions for them for several films, including Star Treks IV and V, making lobby displays. Our work area was behind the screen of the big theater, and our early weekend morning work sessions allowed me the opportunity to explore. If I remember correctly that was an 80-foot screen. Just a great house.

I went here once, I think around ‘87 – '88. The theatre we were in seemed huge, although I was just a little kid at the time. My memory reminds me size-wise of the Uptown Theatre in Washington D.C. I wonder if the other two screens were smaller?
