The Jerry Lewis Cinema opened in the early-1970’s or late-1960’s. The two screen theatre was little more than a concrete block structure.

The theatre eventually became part of the UA chain. At various times, the Carmel River would flood and take the theatre along with it.

As a result, the theatre was nicknamed “the Swamp”, as the theatre took on a decidedly wet musty smell.

UA/Regal vacated the place in the mid-1990’s and the entire structure was demolished within the last few years. The late Donna Berger was its last manager. Donna then moved on to be an Assistant Manager at the Golden State Theatre in downtown Monterey.

Does anybody have a pic of that amazing photo mural that wrapped around the lobby? It was the coolest feature that concrete bunker had.
