Here is a 12/18/76 article from the Dover Times Reporter:

The Bexley Theater in downtown Dover will re-open Christmas Day, manager Kenneth Frew said Friday. It had been closed earlier this month as part of a pre-holiday economy move by Cinema
Corp. of America. Frew said the re-opening, originally scheduled for yesterday, had been delayed because of the popularity of “King Kong,” which opened Friday night at the Quaker Theater in downtown New Philadelphia. The Pittsburgh-based chain owns the two theaters and the Cinema Theater, also in New Philadelphia.

Frew, who manages all three theaters, said the Bexley will re-open with “Two Minute Warning,” starring Charlton Heston. The Bexley was one of more than 60 theaters closed temporarily by Cinema Corp. to reduce operating costs at a time when attendance at; the movies usually drops. The company planned to re-open the theaters with films designed to attract holiday audiences.

So they destroyed some of the auditorium, but what is the state of it today overall?
