Hey… I just added it, from New York!

Feel free to add more information! Can someone in Omaha check the city directories at the downtown branch and see what years it is listed?

And while you’re there, see if you can scan or copy ads from the Omaha-World Herald microfilm!

Saw many movies here as a teenager in the 70s. 99cent admission. Saw Animal House, Love at First Bite, Meatballs, all multiple times as it was only a buck to get in :)

A 9-24-71 Peter Citron column in the Omaha World Herald asked about the delay in opening promised Jerry Lewis theatres. The franchise holder was Mid-America Theatres Inc., and the article said a partner in that company was David Tews, a lawyer from Lincoln, and was interviewed for this article to explain the status of the theatres. All were in the construction phase or dirt hadn’t been turned over yet. Besides one to be built in Bellevue, there were three – 84th and Frederick; 90th and Maple (which did open in Nov 72) and 119th and Pacific. So this ‘Gemini" theatre apparently was a Jerry Lewis theatre originally.

Thanks for that information CJ. Being a twin it could very well have been a JL. There were several JL theatres in Atlanta so that is all that I have to go by to make this comparison. In the picture above, the lobby looks huge compared to the JL’s here. Also, all of ours were either in free standing buildings or part of a strip shopping center. We never had one in a mall. Doesn’t mean that it could not be the case as that sort of thing would probably be up to the franchise. As long as the fees were paid I doubt if the JL Corp. cared about that sort of thing.

Being located in a mall, it might have avoided the fate of almost all JL theatres, that is serving time as a soft core porno house. The Buford Highway Twin in the Atlanta area still serves that purpose today after almost 50 years of operation.
