Are the theatres still intact here?

When I worked there in 1975 the address on our stationary, my business cards and the incoming mail was 3600……

Yup, thats me. 8/75 thru 2/77 at Dort…. where did you get my name?

Seat counts were 425? I thought it was about 450, but if I told you 425 then , that’s what it was. It was a long time ago. I hated that theatre, badly proportioned, never should have been split, plus it was in a dead mall. I hated that town, too. What a sorry-ass place that was.
