An August 20, 1938, Boxoffice item that reported the sale of the Empire and El Dorado theaters to Fred and Lee Naify said that the El Dorado had 300 seats and the Empire 600 seats. Both figures were probably rounded off.

There are several news paper accounts of the seating, but the El Dorado Historical Society said 500 seats. One account in the local paper says 300, so it could be true that is was 280.
