Booth 3 & 4 as viewed from the entry from the hallway. Both had Christie Consoles with AM7C automation, which was slightly modified in 1987 for picking up a second inboard cue to swith a stereo unit over, however only 4, in the foreground, ever had the stereo unit put in. This was not a completely automatic cue either as there was a switch on the panel that in the up posistion would and the Inboard Cue switch in off posistion would force a stereo processor into stereo. After the first inboard cue went by, the projectionist had to put the inboard cue switch back to house lights and the stereo switch back to the off posistions. If this was not done the second inboard cue would then again pulse the processor for a stereo mode. # 3 also had this modification to it, but since it never received a stereo unit, the switches were never messed with. These two auditoriums had Century SAW projectors with a Kelmar belt driven lens changer that just slide one lens to the side while sliding the other into place.
