  1. What are the holes in the seat levels that would have been behind a seat?

  2. The holes are air ducts that remove air from the theater. Air enters the theater through air registers around the perimeter of the dome, just below the base, and also from the exterior of the dome, actually moving through the millions of tiny holes in the screen.
