The Jerry Lewis Cinemas were “sold” as small theaters that could be operated by one person as projectionist, ticket seller/taker, and concession stand attendant! They were a franchise operation, if I remember right.

A brief article from the Salt Lake Tribune dated March 27, 1971

“The Glendale Plaza in Salt Lake City will have a new theater devoted to the exhibition of family movies beginning April 15. Brent Hancock, former sales executive with Sears, and Lloyd Hunt, retired Richfield farmer, have bought the franchise to a Jerry Lewis Cinema that will feature G and GP rated films.
The theater will seat 300 persons and will include the latest in projection equipment and design”.
