This small 2 screen theater was located somewhere on 90th Street, between Maple Street and Fort Street. It was demolished in the mid-to late-1990’s. It was certainly open and operational in 1994. No known information is available as to the closing date of this theater.

This opened as Jerry Lewis on November 9th, 1972 and renamed Maplewood in 1973. Grand opening ad with picture posted here.

It was on the east side of 90th Street, next to the Papio Creek. The address in the ad above is now an Aldi market. All of the businesses on that side of 90th were free standing buildings. Because of the Papio, that side of 90th was never as successful as other parts.

In later years, rather shop-worn, it became a 99-cent movie theater.

Torsten is right. If you look on Google earth in 1993. You can see the theatre building still there in front of what would become Aldi.
