Information for this tour was contributed by Lisa Barr.

Back in the late 1960s and early 1970s, this was a Jerry Lewis theater. The chain folded and a local businessman, Charles Wade, bought it. He changed the name to the SMILE Theater because that was the only thing he could use with the letters LEWIS (he turned the W upside down.)
