The February 14, 1914, issue of The Moving Picture World mentions the Olympic Theatre and gives its seating capacity:

“Mr. and Mrs. C. E. Wirick paid a visit to The World office last week. Mr. Wirick is owner of the Olympic and Majestic Theaters in Sioux City, seating, respectively, 300 and 400 people.”
The item also has this useful line: “There are 11 moving picture theaters in Sioux City, the largest being the Royal, with a capacity of 600.”
