Previous Names: Jerry Lewis Cinemas
Originally opened on March 15, 1973 as the triple screen Jerry Lewis Cinemas at the Biscayne Mall. The theatre was a failure from its opening with the showing of family entertainment. The theatre management wanted to seperate from the Jerry Lewis chain in order to start showing trash movies and X-rated fare. The name of the theatre was changed almost overnight to the Biscayne III Theatre to seperate it from the Jerry Lewis chain and it reopened on May 1, 1973.
With the expansion of the video market and trash movies dropping off in business, the Biscayne’s business also slowed down. Mainstream movies went over well at the Biscayne until the opening of the four screen at the Columbia Mall.
The Dickinson Theatres took over the operations of the Biscayne on December 4, 1976 and dropped the prices to $1.50, but finally closed the theater in the summer of 1998.
