Here's my 2 cents

According to the Jai-Alai handbook that came out in 1978 - Newport had a seating capacity of 4,000 and a capacity of 7,000 - which I have doubts about both. Mike Warner is probably right that it was closer to 3.000. Interestingly , the Providence Journal regularly posted handle and attendance in the pre-strike days - the largest figures posted for attendance on Saturday nights in those days exceeded 5,000 (probably counting standing room, restaurant and cocktail lounge,etc.) And that was on their best nights.
