I can’t recall was ‘Blue Thunder’ when it played at the Tenley presented in 70mm?

Regarding the original Tenley Circle Theatre: the small auditorium held 198, the middle one 270, and the large auditorium 454. I worked at the Tenley from 1983 to 1985. Some of our visitors during that time included Siskel and Ebert, Lynda Carter, and Ted Koppel. It was a magical place.

sorry, correction, I had forgotten that it was two initially and a third screen was added. In it’s current configuration, the space is now just one auditorium with raked seating. Too bad, no films are being presented for this year’s Filmfest at the Greenberg.

The Tenley theatre had a 70mm system when LITTLE SHOP OF HORRORS (Frank Oz remake) opened in December of 1986. Question: was the theatre always set up with three auditoriums? or was it just one theatre initially?
