Between the 1960 and 1970 census, the city of Lewisville grew from just under 4,000 to over 9,000 in 1970. With that growth came two new theatres in 1971. There was the July launch of a drive-in and - in the newly-built Lewisville West Shopping Center - a new indoor twin cinema.

The Jerry Lewis Cinema Twin I & II was an automated franchise of the Jerry Lewis Cinema Network Corp. Circuit. It was one of six announced locations in the Golden Triangle area and the first to open. It launched on December 17, 1971 with “A Boy 10 Feet Tall” as its premiere matinee on Cinema I. Later that night, Cinema I featured “Song of Norway” as the evening’s premiere launch. Cinema II featured a double feature of “Going Home” & “Kelly’s Heroes”.

Other area Jerry Lewis Cinema franchises were opened in McKinney and Hurst in 1972. Two more locations were built but by the time they held their openings, the Lewis Circuit had disbanded and those theatres opened under different names. The sixth location planned on Loop 820 in the Mid-Cities was scrapped altogether.

This location was renamed the Lewisville Cinema Twin I & II in 1973 and continued as a first-run theatre into 1980. It may have continued as a discount house from that point.
