I didnt think Jerry Lewis Cinemas opened anything more than 2 screens. Were there theatres added on?

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 had always thought Jerry Lewis Theatres were free standing Buildings.

Hmm. I wonder which part of the mall it was in… probably where Dunham’s is now.
