The Somerset Cinema 1 & 2 was located in the Somerset Inn across the street from the Somerset Mall. It was originally a General Cinema theatre. If someone else ran it it was after I left the area. There were 2 auditoriums , aprx 600 seats each. The box office was in the hotel lobby, and you decended a long wide stairway into the theatre lobby. The theatre did not use the standard (at that time) signage with red serif-style letters and the Roman I & II - they had lower-case sans-serif style letters with arabic 1 & 2 numbers. I believe the letters were white. I was told this was to maintain continuity with the hotels signage, and since the hotel was the landlord it was written into the lease.
