Viewing: Photo | Street View

Built during the late-1960’s as part of the Jerry Lewis chain in a shopping center. Later became a second run twin running movies coming off the first run theaters. In later years they seemed to concentrate on G rated films appealing to families. It was closed in May 2014. It reopened as the Agawam Cinemas on November 6, 2015.

This was renamed Cinema 1 & 2 in 1975 and renamed again as Agawam Twin in 1977.
