This should be listed as a 7-screen multiplex. It seats 715.
It is now a store called Wicker Paradise which sells furniture to meet all your wicker needs.
It appears to be retail and offices now.
It is now known as the Sterling Cinemas and operated as a discount theatre by the Sensible Cinemas chain with a website http://www.sensiblecinemas.com/

Hey Michael: Believe it or not, this theatre actually IS under consideration for use by a symphony orchestra. Word is that the Hartford Symphony Orchestra is considering turning the Plaza into their rehearsal space.
This theatre closed around 1952 and was converted into a TV showroom sales facility. It is sad to see it in its current sta5te as a parking garage.
The status of this cinema should be changed. It was demolished in 2002.
piggy: View link will get you their showtimes
If anyone out there has any old photos of the interior please let the Opera House people know. So far no one has been able to find any photos anywhere!
This theatre was shut down for code violations in the mid-70’s and has not been used since. Photos of the interior are at View link .

Ooh! This theatre is less than 90 minutes from my house. I’d love to drop by sometime to see and photograph the wonderful restoration that has taken place!
I didn’t include photos of the not-so-flattering details (e.g. the peeling walls, the sagging ceilings, and the holes in the floors)!
There is no way this theatre will be reopened by June. I have been in a few theatres that were renovating, and this one is in far too dilapidated a condition to be fixed up so quickly. I’d guess that it will open at least 6 months behind schedule.
The website listed above does not work. That official web page of the Calvin is http://www.iheg.com/
…and yes, I can spell, that was just a typo.
Michael is unempployed? Well, there’s the shock of the century!
There is an awesome Quicktime Virtual Tour of this theatre at View link
What are you smoking? The Community Theatre Foundation faithfully updates their listings in every major newspaper and in all the online movie listing guides. They also have a phone number with a recording telling you the showtimes. They are a community-owned, non-profit, second run/art cinema. Having a website of their own may not be feasible, but you have to be intentionally ignorant not to come across their showtimes.
The Opera House is going to get a complete renovation over every square inch of the facility during the next few years that could cost up to $3 million. Its official website is http://www.thomastonoperahouse.org/
Who ever heard of a symphony concert hall that seats less than 300 people?
No, Michael, it would not. It would be a tragedy to waste a beautiful movie theatre such as this on concerts. It needs to remain a cinema.
I was in the Avon yesterday to watch some screenings of 35mm trailers and 16mm films as the final touches were put on the theatre. It is absolutely amazing inside following a $1 million renovation. It is the most well-restored classic movie house that still screens films that I have ever been inside. After it officially reopens if you are anywhere in the vicinty you should come take a look at the Avon!
