Address was actually 246 Waring Rd
rivest266: That would be the original Parsons Theatre, not this one which opened as the Grand in 1914.
This was located on SW Front St and has been demolished according to https://milfordlive.com/2014/09/24/governor-signs-armory-over-to-city/
The theatre was at 2734 Broad St. It is now a fitness center.
This theatre is now the Arts Center Theatre, located at 116 E Elm St. It is owned by the town and is used for live productions.
The address is 67 S Peachtree St. The theatre was on the first floor of the Masonic Hall in the 1940’s and 1950’s.
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.
Address is 420 Court St
Address is 103 S Front St
They did briefly shut down in August, but reopened shortly thereafter with new management. The website is now http://www.bijoutheatre.org/.
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.
Correct number is 523, not 528.
This theatre hosted movies at least through 2014. You can see the 2013 Google street view when it was showing the movie “The Heat”. It is now a live music theatre known as the Deloraine Winchester Theatre.
According to the article at http://westenddumplings.blogspot.com/2011/10/aagaard-brothers-in-brandon.html the Towne Cinema was the same building as the old Oak Theatre, which opened way back in 1930. It has been demolished.
It’s actually Highway 5 and Highway 41 (not 43).
Applause Dinner Theatre closed in 2014
Correct address is 1773 Broad St which is across the street and down the block from the hotel at 1700.
