Actually Chuck, the smallest screen ( #1 ) has 88 seats.

The numbers out there are from when the place opened in 1996, but the seats were replaced in 2006.

The Big house ( #3 ) has around 320 now.

This theatre was built by Leonard Schein and eventually it became a partnership situation of Famous Players Canadian Corporation!!

The sale now appears to be official, as the Festival Cinemas website says that the 5th Avenue is now part of Cineplex Entertainment.
