Do Commercial Theaters Use Multiple Center Channel speakers? It seems that it would be a mighty task for just one speaker to provide sound for the center channel.

Yes. They are pro speakers like used at concerts. Multi driver arrays that are bi or tri amped. See link to a jbl cinema speaker designed to be behind a screen.

The two theater installations I've had the oppertunity to check out behind the screen, many years ago via friends, were THX certified JBL installations that had three identical full-range speakers (L/C/R) across the stage using some of these, and these.
