The Film Daily Yearbook, 1941 lists the Woodbine Theatre, but gives no seating capacity. This usually means that the theatre had just opened and details had not been passed on for publication. In the F.D.Y.1943 edition seating is given as 400 and in the F.D.Y.1950 edition it gives 740 seats.

Both the Woodbine and the Centre theater on Thompson Rd were apparently part of a large complex then known as the Navy Separation Center on Thompson Road. I made a visit to this area on Tuesday. Both theaters have been demolished. A bank now resides where the Woodbine once stood and a Nissan dealership blankets the ground where the Centre was anchored.
