The church seated 7,000 people in its auditorium. SEVEN THOUSAND PEOPLE. The Paramount Theater in NY (part of Madison Square Garden) only seats half as many people. They also had choir seating for 500 singers above the stage. 500 people in the CHOIR! My local church back in NY was lucky to get 100 people show up for a friggin' mass. And they had a pit for a 50 piece orchestra. You don't even see that in Broadway theaters. They also had large video displays for people in the Uecker seats (that's us).
Wait... who's that knocking at the door?
