I was the manager of the Dort Mall Cinema in 1976. As I recall the capacity was about 425 + 425 after it had been split. The splitting ruined the place - it was badly proportioned - long, narrow and tall. The bingo hall mentioned in a previous message was put in part of the former Zodys store. It was when they were trying to revive the property, re-naming it "The Small Mall". The remodeling saw the theatres marquee removed from the front of the mall, split in half, and put up on a post out by the road.
