The theatre was located on West Jefferson Street adjacent to Inwood Park and was the first indoor mall in Joliet. It was a one level mall. Anchors of the mall were Montgomery Ward and Weibolts. The mall had a very short life. Weibolts became Menard’s when the entire chain went out of business. After the mall failed the entire mall, except for Menard’s was demolished. Menard’s is still in business at the mall’s location.

Jefferson Square 1-2-3 The mall/theatres opened I believe in 1974. As a teenager in the mid-late 70s growing up in a nearby smaller city, this was the place to go. These theatres were always packed on the weekends.

When the Louis-Joliet mall theatre opened in 1978, it stole many patrons away from Jefferson Square 1-2-3. (it had more cinemas)
