The 163rd St. was a single screen until it twinned around 1983. Yes, The Patio screen was completely separate. It had 850 seats. both sides had 70mm capability. In fact, during the end of RETURN OF THE JEDI’s run, an attempt was made to run the 70mm print in one of the now 300 seat sides, since the projector had been left upstairs during the twinning. It…did not go well.
We would often get 70mm exclusives before the other theaters.
