If it followed the pattern of other Jerry Lewis’s, including the one my father and I worked at in the 70’s, one auditorium would have been blue and the other red. Also the lobby may have been split by the concession stand, preventing patrons from crossing over. The one where we worked at opened in 1972 and closed in 1984.

Not all Jerry Lewis Long Island Theatres were twins: the exceptions being Ronkonkoma (laterly the Lakeside Cinema) and Center Moriches (Center Cinema). It seems to me the RKO Twins also had auditoriums with different color schemes.

The Fairlawn Twin, originally a Jerry Lewis, in Topeka, Kansas had the same color scheme that is being described in the first post. I do not recall where or how the concession stand was placed.

If you read Jerry’s Bio, “DEAN and ME” he explains a lot about his failed Theatres.

Forest Avenue, Arlington, NY, isn’t very helpful and I have also seen the theater listed in the Mariners District.


Open ~1974-~1983? Can anyone verify the exact dates?

More info and photos are always welcome.
