At the time of its opening in 1974, the Bordeaux’s seating capacity as a twin theatre was at 600 seats each in both auditoriums. It was the first twin theatre to feature a deluxe ultra-sound system with full stereophonic sound along with push back lounge chairs for easy relaxation and viewing. A large luxurious lobby to eliminate long lines along with a dual concession stand.
