My brother worked at the Totem Theatre and I worked at the Capitol Theatre when we were in our teens. I don’t recall the exact number of seats, but it was between 500-600 seats. They don’t make theatres like this anymore. When ET came out in the theatres, the Totem Theatre would sell out on both showings of ET for months. This was before the VCR and at a time when the popcorn was popped with coconut oil…. those were the days.
