Jerry Lewis Cinemas theatre model.

The Jerry Lewis Cinema opened on January 14, 1972 with Walter Matthau in “Kotch”. It was a single screen with seating listed at 386. It was later twinned and became known as the Frankfort Cinemas.

The theatres closed in 2006 and has since been demolished. The site is now a Wendy’s restaurant.

Actually this cinema opened in 1972 as a single screen very similar as the model shown with Jerry Lewis. The second screen was added several years later. Trying to find pictures of this theatre when I worked there.

An item in the 1-31-72 issue of Boxoffice said it was 350 seats and opened 1-14-72 with “Kotch” and the night before, a sneak for local officials was held. Operator’s name was Rosendahl.
