This theatre opened on June 7, 1972 as the Jerry Lewis Twin Cinemas, in the Carteret Shopping Center. The opening movies were George C. Scott in “The Hospital” and a double-bill Disney program of John Mills in “Swiss Family Robinson” & “101 Dalmations”. Each house seated 300 people. Projection was dual projectors with 6,000 foot reels.
This theatre, when first opened, was a great weekend matinee popcorn house. Each auditorium would be packed with kids. The theatre did great business for the first few years, but fell into disrepair.
A sale of the theatre in 1982, and name change to the town’s name did little to help, and the theatre closed for good after the summer of 1984. Today the building is occupied by a Dollar Plus and a Payless Shoe Source.
