The Jerry Lewis Cinema was opened in 1971. It was later renamed Plaza Cinema, and eventually went over to screening adult porn movies. An Arby’s Roast Beef restaurant now operates on the site.

The Jerry Lewis Cinema had a difficult time getting it’s footing because the 4-screen cinema across town had much more booking power. The Jerry Lewis did have a few successful multi-week runs with “Lovers and Other Strangers”, “Little Big Man”, “Airport 1979” and “Andromeda Strain” and a few John Wayne features including “Rio Lobo” and “Big Jake”. It was much more successful as a hardcore porn house with multi week sold-out runs of fare such as Deep Throat, The Devil & Miss Jones & Debbie Does Dallas.
