Hi,

These are the dimensions just for the auditorium and stage of a single screen:
Theater...................34' X 77'

Stage .....................14' X 34'

Seats 296 plus two handicapped (wheelchair) spaces.
Is it possible to make a nice twin by looking at it as is now I think You cannot partition it down the center and use 1 booth. Twinning it would likely mean dividing it lenghtwise into 2 theatres, adding a hallway, and another booth.
What do the pros say on this?

<B>I had a similar situation: 100' auditorium plus 15' stage... I drew up the plans and had it partially approved to split down the center into front & rear theaters, then good sense got the best of me... By the time you build the required hallways, and accept the misery of two seperate booths and the nearly impossible situation of keeping an eye on two theaters that are essentially accessable only through the lobby, you end up with a couple of dinky little "tunnels" for theaters... You'd be much better off to open up the seat spacing in the theater you already have and lose a few seats in favor of more legroom... A really nice comfortable one screen theater is far more desireable that a botched up twin... Been there, and I say forget it!...

I thought so after looking at some designs. It depressed me and said, "Hey Don't fix what is not broke". Somethings weren't ment to be and I beleive this is the case.
I should just focus on the one screen and make it the best possible presentation then ruining it and turning it into twins.
Those samll tunnel cinemas are horrible!

I agree. Your auditorium is too narrow to be split into two rooms. If you are not first run, then I suggest split screening your features.
