According to the Wikipedia article the Gardens portion closed in 1968 and there was an extensive renovation to the indoor theater. After a fire in the 1970s the theater was restored but closed 9/24/83.

New owners demolished the gardens adding a second auditorium which seated 210. At the time of the reopening the capacity of the original auditorium was 500 for a total of 710.
