Actually http://www.twoboots.com/pioneer/ gets you to the main page of the Pioneer Theater rather than the theater info page.

Roger Katz commented about Cameo Theater on Mar 14, 2005 at 3:50 am

That article says the Cameo closed in the early-80’s which is obviously false. If you look at my photos at http://www.cinematour.com/tour.php?db=us&id=7164 you will see a movie poster still displayed there for a film that, according to IMDb, was released in late 1995.

If you want it updated feel free to go right ahead and do the research required. I don’t have the time right now to put together another listing. Many of the theatres above still appear to be for sale. The Madison in Albany is only asking $399,000 now.

Back in 1909 ALL cinemas were one screen.

Roger Katz commented about Lyceum Theater on Feb 8, 2005 at 4:49 am

I drove by this building after I went to the Danbury Trashers game on Sunday. It really does not look like a theatre. if there was a theatre in here it must’ve been of the storerfront variety.

Isn’t the address for this actually 106 Federal Road?

Roger Katz commented about Coronet Theatre Will Close On Feb 10th on Feb 5, 2005 at 4:48 am

Why are cities still knocking down these movie houses? Haven’t they learned the lessons from all those towns who knocked them down decades ago and wish they had them back? Or the cities who DIDN’T knock them down and are so glad that they didn’t?

Also, it opened in 1996, not 1999.

It is in the Wintonbury Mall (there’s a spelling mistake in the listing above.) Chain is entertainment Cinemas.

Roger Katz commented about Entertainment Cinemas Seymour Cinema 12 on Feb 3, 2005 at 12:29 pm

The chain should be listed as Entertainment Cinemas.

Roger Katz commented about AMC Loews Plainville 20 + IMAX on Feb 3, 2005 at 12:28 pm

At 20 screens, this is the largest theatre in Connecticut.

Roger Katz commented about Lyceum Theater on Jan 31, 2005 at 3:44 am

Frequently in that era a theatre that you find was only around for a year or two was one of those old storefront movie theatres. Maybe that was it. I don’t know. I’ll check out the building when I’m in Danbury this coming Sunday.

Roger Katz commented about Lyceum Theater on Jan 30, 2005 at 5:39 pm

Did you find any evidence that the Lyceum was a movie theatre? Perhaps it was just a live theatre. In the old city directories movie theatres often were designated as having moving pictures, but not always.

Roger Katz commented about Shaughnessy Theater on Jan 22, 2005 at 12:40 pm

Was this previously a movie theatre under a different name?

Roger Katz commented about Wall Street Theatre on Jan 19, 2005 at 8:51 am

This was known as the Norwalk Theatre in its early days.

This theatre is now a Restoration Hardware store.

Roger Katz commented about Waterbury Cinema on Jan 18, 2005 at 1:15 pm

The mall had a three screen cinema (maybe four at a later time). The ten screen cinema behind the mall still exists as the Holiday Cinemas 10 which are, in my opinion, the best kept cinemas in Connecticut.

Roger Katz commented about Member Comment Histories Will Return! on Jan 12, 2005 at 6:17 pm

Regarding recent comments, I would like the a way to see the list of theatres with recent comments along with their location as is done for new and updated theatres. For example, when I see Palace Theatre, I don’t know if it is one in Connecticut (which I’d care to read about), California (which I wouldn’t care to read about), or somewhere in between. It would make it easier than having to click on the theatre link to see which one it is.

The State Theatre once again closed down in late 2004.
