I know little about the early-to-middle history of this cinema. It was built as a single screen theatre by Jerry Lewis Cinemas and was located in the Pennsbury Plaza. By the time I first visited it in the late-1980’s, it was offering second-run films of varying quality: some prints would be great, while others would be scratched beyond belief. Admission was $2 for all.
It seemed, during the years I went, to be a family-run affair and was incredibly popular on weekends with families. There was a wall separating it into two screens ran cleanly through the seating area, which, by the early-1990’s, featured whole aisles of seating in various degrees of destruction and decay. This, and the sticky floors (and seating), gave one the undeniable feeling of being in a flophouse theatre.
