Why is there no information on this spectacular theater?

What a great place to see wide screen films.

Was this a 70mm roadshow house?

Agreed. Looks like a real gem. Wish there was more information and photos. The auditorium, what we can see of it, is stunning! Can’t believe they let this one get away.
