Auditorium 1 at the Caprice Duncan (which is what it still appears as) is actually 372, not 672.

The website link on the right side no longer works, as that site (Criterion Luxury Theatres) is down. This is the current site for the theatre:

Caprice Showcase Theatres

As such, this theatre’s name should currently be listed as the Caprice Twin (as shown at the website) and as part of the Caprice Showcase Theatres chain.

The Caprice Twin is now listed as part of the Hollywood 3 Cinemas chain, as seen at its website:

Complete photo tour added from a November 2017 visit for a private screening. Although it doesn’t look like much in the lobby and exterior the theaters are STUNNING to be in.

The Caprice opened before 1985. Definitely before the 1983 closure of the Odeon. I saw Tron there in 1982.
