The Ellis Isle Twin Cinema was built in the early-1970’s. It had the lobby in the middle and each auditorium off to the side with around 400 seats each. It was built and operated by Ogden-Perry Theatres out of New Orleans/Baton Rouge. Ogden-Perry also operated the Jackson Mall Cinema.
Around 1978 they divided the two theatres and renamed the theatre Ellis Isle 4. In 1984 Ogden-Perry Theatres fell in bankruptcy and the theatre property was awarded to Gulf States Theatres along with several other O-P theatres. GST sold their circuit to UA theatres in 1986 and the Ellis Isle Cinema 4 went with to UA, which they operated until 1988. The lease was up and the landlord decided there were other uses for the property. While the building is still standing, it was used and office/warehouse for a time.
It was reopened by September 2013, now known as the Renaissance Cinemas.
