Roger Katz commented about Showcase Cinemas Bridgeport on Jan 23, 2017 at 1:53 pm

The theatre across the way was built by Loews. Showcase Cinemas had been planning to build a theatre in the Danbury area. The two companies made a deal. In exchange for letting Loews have the Danbury area to themselves Showcase gained the theatre that Loews was building in Fairfield.

Do we know for sure if the Salvation Army building incorporates the old theatre? I was there yesterday and could not tell if it may be a completely new building.

Roger Katz commented about State Theater on Dec 8, 2016 at 5:48 pm

Despite what was claimed in any article, the Islamic Center building was not the State Theatre. It was, indeed, the building next to the State Theatre shown in the old photo. The Islamic Center’s address is 14 W 7th. The new building after the vacant lot if 26 W 7th. Therefore 20-24 W 7th is the vacant lot which is where the State used to be.

The church next door has a number of 636, so this theatre would have been approximately 630.
