Owned by the Jerry Lewis Cinemas chain, this small 4-screen multiplex was located in the Delta Plaza Mall. The mall opened in 1970 and the cinema opened on October 1, 1973 with Julie Andrews in “Thoroughly Modern Miliie”. On December 9, 1973 it was renamed Plaza Theatre, operating with just one screen showing Julie Andrews in “The Sound of Music”. It was closed on January 9, 1977 with Jacquline Bisset in “The Deep”. It has since been converted to retail space.

Bobby,If you find the Bio,“Dean and Me” Mr.Lewis discusses his venture into the theatre business,something he hasn’t written alot about,that I know of.
Hmm. I wonder which part of the mall it was in… probably where Dunham’s is now.
I had always thought Jerry Lewis Theatres were free standing Buildings.
The September 12, 1972, issue of The Escanaba Daily Press carried an ad placed by the Network Cinema Corporation soliciting an investor/operator for the new Jerry Lewis Cinema then nearing completion in Escanaba. $17,500 dollars would get you into the theater business with this 350-seat house (additional working capital required.)
I didnt think Jerry Lewis Cinemas opened anything more than 2 screens. Were there theatres added on?
Opened on 10/1/1973 with “Thoroughly modern Millie”. Closed in early or mid april with “Cabaret”. Reopened in late april after renovations. Closed again(date unknown?) Reopened as Plaza Theatre(now a single screen) on 12/9/1973 with “The Sound of music”. Closed on 1/9/1977 with “The Deep”.
