The theatre in New Jersey sounds identical to the Jerry Lewis Cinema in Niagara Falls,NY. It is currently used as an OTB.

I am curious, this being a twin, if it was similar to the one my father and I worked at in New Jersey. One theatre had a blue color scheme, the other one red. The concession stand split the lobby in half, so patrons could not cross over. There was a complete set of restrooms in each lobby. Each of ours seated 300. The one we worked at opened in 1972 and closed in 1984.
