Yes the Lisbon landing Theatres have killed our business thats why my predecessors have faired not very well.
Yes the theatre is only open on weekends because little or no one comes in Mon _ Thurs. And it is extremely expensive to heat the building for only a handfull of people. We have been showing first run art movies such as Pride and Prejudice and Good Night and Good Luck. but because our low attendance the movie companies will not make us new prints untill we can boost our attendance dramaticlly.So now we will be getting art films as they come off other theatres. We had tried running Kids films on Saturday and Sunday afternoons with little or no attendance.Also I have had Tried a few second run movies with the same result.
I am the fourth owner of this theatre since 2003. I am trying to keep it going even though I am losing losing money every day that I am open. I love these old neighborhood moviehouses and I am not doing this for the money.It is becoming extremely harder to do business since local papers like the Norwich Bulletin and New London day no longer will list movie times for free. I am presently showing art films trying to build a following for these films I would appreciate it if all you wonderful people would try to get the word out for me so I can keep this wonderful theatre open. THANK YOU ALL FOR YOUR HELP.
we hope to have the theatre re opened sometime in november. details as i can give them to everyone i will post thank you
i guess they lied to you i passed by there the other day and the marquee is being torn down such a shame
if you have 10 grand to blow a month you can lease the theater 2 store fronts and 2 family house next to it they will not seperate them. they are waiting for a pharmacy to lease it. they already have a cvs across the street and a walgreens down the street. i already tried to work something out with the theater to no avail
the theater has been closed for about ten years now. Dennis is the property manager for the plaza. They will not lease out this building because the entire plaza is being sold to redevelopers .the management company phone no. is 203 846 9095 .
The 2 store fronts to this theatre are now empty the last being a flower store. I called the realtor who said they are hoping to have a letter of intent from a perspective buyer or leasee. When i asked about its possible use they said it was not a theatre. i put several calls to the owner who has not returned any of my calls.
Recently went there to see Celluar and the place looks great. A new larger screen to see movies and a nice clean theatre with good sound and reasonable prices made it great.
Palace Reopened last week after 18 years with Tony Bennett opening it he was also the last performer there when it closed. Waterbury spent 30 million on the restoration.
Just watched the 6oclock news elm demolition started today
