I saw Transformers: The Movie 3 times at the Brentwood in 1986 and I don’t recall any of the auditoriums having 350+ seats. They seemed like smallish auditoriums to me, even though I was a child.

The construction of a new four-plex theater at the Brentwood Shopping Center was announced in the May 8, 1970, issue of Boxoffice Magazine. The house was being built by Robert L. Lippert Enterprises, for operation by Lippert’s Transcontinental Theatres subsidiary. A total of 1600 seats were divided among two auditoriums of 450 seats, and two of 350 seats. The architect was Gale Santocono. The web site of the Robert Lippert Foundation lists the Brentwood 4 Cinemas, as well as a Colorado 4 Cinemas in the same city.

A similar four-plex, also designed by Santocono, was planned by Lippert for the Denver suburb of Aurora, and both it and the Brentwood project were expected to be in operation by September, 1970. However, no theaters in Aurora are listed on the Lippert Foundation web site. I don’t know if the Aurora four-plex wasn’t built, or was built but opened by another theatre chain. If it was built, it isn’t listed at Cinema Treasures.

The Brentwood shopping center which housed the Brentwood 4 still stands at Federal Blvd. and Evans. The center is split into 2 seperate buildings and the theatre was in the center of the Northern building. It has been converted to retail space. There is a double arch structure out on the sidewalk in front of what was the entrance to the theatre.
