Notes:

Owned by the Jerry Lewis Cinemas chain, this small 4-screen multiplex was located in the Delta Plaza Mall. The mall opened in 1970 and the cinema opened on October 1, 1973 with Julie Andrews in “Thoroughly Modern Millie”. On December 9, 1973 it was renamed Plaza Theatre, operating with just one screen showing Julie Andrews in “The Sound of Music”. It was closed on January 9, 1977 with Jacquline Bisset in “The Deep”. It has since been converted to retail space.

Used to take the future Mrs. to this movie house back in the early 70s. Just a plain mall movie theatre. Nothing fancy to it.

I don''t have a picture, but in the 1970s there was a Jerry Lewis Cinema in the Delta Plaza in Escanaba. This was a small chain started by Jerry Lewis that began in 1969. The sign featured a line drawing of Jerry Lewis. The theaters were usually small and had mostly automated equipment. The Jerry Lewis Cinema lasted until the late 1970s in Escanaba before it closed.
