Roger Katz commented about Meriden Cinema 1 & 2 on Dec 20, 2004 at 12:26 am

I assume you are getting the 77 State St. address from CinemaTour. I used it there because that is the address I found in the newspaper and/or city directory listings for the Meriden Mall Cinema 1 & 2 during my research.

I had heard last summer that there were plans to renovate the theatre? Has nothing come of those?

The status on this says “Demolished” but I’m not sure it is going to be demolished. I think they may just gut the inside and reuse the building. We’ll have to see.

I was in thew Plaza today. It stills sits abandoned with everything still remaining: the seats, the screens, the speakers, and even the projector.

Roger Katz commented about Elm Theater on Nov 26, 2004 at 12:02 am

I was in the Elm Theatre today. It appears that while they have demolished the attached shopping plaza and are in the process of gutting the theatre that they will keep the actual structure. The twinning has been undone by removal of the wall that separated the two auditoriums, so for the first time I saw the entire interior of the Elm as it was in its days as a single screen. Sadly, all the chairs have been ripped out and many are piled on the floor, the balcony floor has been removed leaving only metal beams, the projectors are gone, and all rugs and ornementation have been removed. Still intact are both screens (it looks odd since both are now next to each other in one large auditorium), the platter, the toilets bathrooms (but the sinks are removed), and a few art deco light fixtures. I found the floor plan from when it was a single screen theatre inside a desk. I also took many photos of the interior before it is completely destroyed.

The Criterion was built in the former United Illuminating building which is a pre-World War 2 structure.

Actually, the Mansfield’s season runs only through September. It is the other CT drive-in, the Pleasant Valley, that runs through October.

I don’t consider this a real cinema. It is a library showing a few free videos.

Roger Katz commented about REMINDER: Vote In This Week's Poll! on Oct 22, 2004 at 5:09 pm

Why aren’t the new polls put up on the main page? Why is it always the original “How many movies did you see this summer poll”?

This is on Route 12 in Danielson. Proper name is the Danielson-Putnam Twin Drive-In. The Lord chain also owned some other theatres in the area including the Midtown and Yale theatres in Norwich.
