This was an automated twin screen seating 700 that in formative stages was to be a Jerry Lewis Cinema. But plans changed and the Plaza Cinema 1 & 2 launched April 22, 1973 with “Soylent Green” featured in Plaza Cinema 1 and “Cabaret” featured in Plaza Cinema 2. Lewis had left the theater circuit by the time the Plaza launched and Network Cinema had disconnected its phones. The Plaza Cinema 1 & 2 appears to have ceased operations on July 27, 1978

This theater operated for a few years from about 1970-1976. It was mostly a second-run double feature house and (at that point) the only English language movie house in San Leandro. (The Del Mar was closed by then and the Bal was showing Spanish language films at that point.) The theater was an independent.
