Starcase Triplex Theatres

The Jerry Lewis Cinema was opened as a twin by 1973. By June 1974 it had been renamed Esquire Twin Cinemas. It became the Starcase Triplex Theatres and closed around 2003, probably because of competition from the Holiday Cinemas, which had more screens and a better location.

I didn’t attend too many movies here but I made a note of seeing “The Great Northfield Minnesota Raid” here in December, 1973. It was standard cookie-cutter Jerry Lewis cinema.

The building still stands and is owned by the car dealership in the same parking lot. They have plans to demolish the building to make room for more cars.

“Star Wars” played on the island at this theater. The lines were halfway across the parking lot some days.

I was there for ‘Return of the Jedi’, as well as ‘The Land that Time Forgot’ amongst many other famous titles. I will miss that place.

Starcase Cinema was owned by SSC, the same company that owned the Opera House Cinema in Newport, and the Holidays Cinema in Middletown, as well as the Drive-In in Middletown.
SSC- Steve, Stella and Clem. All have passed on sadly.

Previously known as the Esquire Twin Cinemas, per a June, 1974 ad.
