Bridgewood Theatre

Opened on October 27, 1972 as the Jerry Lewis Twin with Peter Sellers in “Where Does It Hurt?” & Tom Laughlin in “Billy Jack”. It was later renamed the Bridgeton Cinema.

A red brick building that was accented with six white columns. Had a small lobby with a small concession area. Due its location, the Bridgeton Cinema was never a success and closed in 1975. It briefly re-opened as the Bridgewood Theatre

Theatre opened as a twin, not a four-plex. One of three Jerry Lewis theatres that were in the St. Louis market, and the only multi-screen.

Theatre opened in October 1972 as the Jerry Lewis Twin and by the following May was being operated by Arthur Enterprises and had been renamed the Bridgeton. Arthur closed the house in December 1973. Theatre reopened under independent management from November 1974 to April 1975, and closed once again.
The checkered career of the theatre had is final burst of glory when it was operated by Mid-America Theatres from May 1975 until that November as the Bridgewood Theatre. House remained a twin its entire career.
