Interesting that Egyptien is spelled with an “e”. In 1990, the seating is given as follows:

Egyptien 1-378
Egyptien 2-198
Egyptien 3-279

Total 855 seats

The Cinema Egyptien was long closed by the time I moved to Montreal but I used to dream of it re-opening with three solid films on the marquee. I walked past this place often — imagine, a movie theater deep in the “underground city,” a place I traveled through often during Quebec’s sub-zero winters. Sadly, it was already in a state of pretty serious disrepair. Is it even still there? I would love to re-open that place someday.

It’s now a medical clinic, very nice.
