Maria, you didn’t leave your e-mail address. I have some photos of the Newington Theatre just as demolition began, and photos of the Cheshire Cinema (both theatres were in Connecticut) before and after demolition. E-mail me at
Unfortunately the entire interior to this beautiful theatre has been gutted as part of the renovations. A new, much smaller, auditorium space will be built inside along with many classrooms for the arts school that will now be housed in the building. See photos of construction as it progresses ar View link and see a virtual tour of what the auditorium will look like when completed at http://www.eastconn.org/Prekstudents_ACT_tour.htm . It is a shame that they had to demolish the interior and rebuild it much smaller to make room for the school. They should have done what the new arts school in Waterbury at the Palace Theatre has done: completely restore the old theatre and build classrooms in a new building next door.
