Previous Names: Jerry Lewis Cinema, Carmel Center Cinemas I & II
The Jerry Lewis Cinema opened on July 9, 1971 with “Gone With the Wind” in screen 1 and George C. Scott in “They Might Be Giants” & Richard Burton in “Anne of the Thousand Days” in screen 2. The two screen theatre was little more than a concrete block structure.
On June 17, 1973 it was renamed Carmel Center Cinemas I & II and closed on March 7, 1995. The theatre eventually became part of the UA chain. At various times, the Carmel River would flood and take the theatre along with it. As a result, the theatre was nicknamed “the Swamp”, as the theatre took on a decidedly wet musty smell.
UA/Regal vacated the place in the late-1990’s and it was taken over by Resort Theatres of America who closed it on March 24, 2002. The entire structure was demolished within the last few years. The late Donna Berger was its last manager. Donna then moved on to be an Assistant Manager at the Golden State Theatre in downtown Monterey.
