Mike, I see it from your ads that this was opened as an UltraVision twin. Do you know if it was really expanded to four or did they just split the twins?

I used to work at this theatre. It started out as a twin. The left auditorium was left as a single, the right auditorium was split into two auditoriums. It remained a three screen theatre until it’s demolition.

Thank you. The header should be changed to three screens and the narrative of the overview changed to show this was expanded to a triple. The grand reopening ad that Mike posted shows it with three features.

Mar312, I managed an UltraVision twin for Georgia Theater Company. They were fine looking theaters with a beautiful picture on the big curved screens. Unfortunately the UltraVision shape made them perfect candidates to be twinned. When it came time for my theater, I suggested that they do what was done here, leave one side intact. No such luck.
