The "upstairs" theater at Trolley Corners had about 800 seats, stadium seating, digital sound, and curtains covering the screen.  It was a very popular theater until a new, larger multiplex blocked it from booking a good selection of first-run films.

Red curtains covered the curved screen in Trolley Corners Theater 1.  When the movie began the curtains rose upwards and the eight doors into the auditorium magically closed by themselves.

Below the stadium seating of Trolley Corners Theater 1 was the lobby and concession stand.  The rows of seats in Theater 1 were curved, with no center aisles.

The last few rows of seats in Trolley Corners Theater 1, with the projection booth windows along the back wall.  When the theater closed it still had two Century 70mm projectors in its booth.

Along each side wall of the Trolley Corners Theater 1 were four exit doors, each one at a higher level.  The doors closed automatically once the movie began.
