News About This Theater
Poli’s Palace Theatre opened on September 2, 1922 with Wallace Reid in “The Dictator”. It was the biggest movie theatre ever erected in Connecticut, and the largest among Bridgeport’s 20-plus theatres.
The Poli’s Palace Theatre is one of two theatres built inside a single building (the other being the Majestic Theatre). The former Poli’s Palace Theatre has clearly seen better days.
It was later renamed Loew’s Palace Theatre, it is similar in style to the Waterbury Poli’s Palace Theatre.
Last renamed Loew’s Palace Theatre, it was screening adult movies in the Winter of 1974, (the Majestic Theatre had closed in 1971) and the Loew’s Palace Theatre was closed in 1975.
It was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1979.
