Can’t seem to add photo for some reason, so here’s a shot online of the theater in 1935 – https://www.sandiegoreader.com/photos/2018/may/06/122000/

Thank you for the memories! I also received the pencil box before school started. I believe they closed down shortly after that. Miss that place. Was beautiful to me even though I was only 5 years old!

The March 18, 1922, issue of trade journal Domestic Engineering said that George H. Wilkinson of Wallingford was having plans prepared for a theater to be built on Center Street. The architect for the project was Loomis J. Thompson. Thompson later designed the Capitol Theatre in Watertown as well.

Try the Wallingford Public Library. Either microfilm or those series of books titled “Images of America”. Sometimes they show cinemas in a scene.
