CinemaTour has three photos of the Park Cinema building taken in 2008, and says the house opened on March 21, 1986. Google Maps indicates that the building is now occupied by two television studios.

The building looks much too large to have had only 375 seats, and General Cinema was building multiplexes with well over 1,000 seats during the 1980s. Is it possible the number is missing a 1 at the front?

It is probably more like a “2” missing in front. 8plexs were the standard GCC build in the 1986-88 era and there were 8 or so of them that were identical plans with the only difference being the on exterior caused by the nature of the individual locations.

If this is one of them then the auditoriums were probably arranged as two sets of four with the seating capacities of 378, 302, 220, 171. Times two of course.
