National Register:
Current Organ: none
 Also Known As: Ellis Isle Twin
 Previously operated by: Ogden-Perry Theatres, Gulf States Theatres, United Artists Theatres

Opened in 1974 by Ogden-Perry Theaters as the Ellis Isle Cinema I & II. In 1980, both auditoriums were twinned forming four auditoriums each reported to seat 250, becaming known as the Ellis Isle 4.

Gulf States Theaters acquired the theatre in 1986 only to have United Artists takeover later that year with their purchase of Gulf States. The theatre stopped appearing in the Clarion-Ledger after business on 6/24/1993.

Though anecdotal evidence has been offered that suggests this theatre received a fifth screen and experienced a life up until 2000, no evidence of this exists in the Jackson Clarion-Ledger or is supported by box office grosses.
