The New Newington Theatre was originally a single screen moviehouse which opened in August 14, 1941 with Robert Taylor in “Billy the Kid” & Kay Francis in “Playgirl”. There were 690 seats, all on a single floor. It remained a single screen until 1993 when the main auditorium was cut in half creating two long, thin, tunnel-like screening rooms.
It closed down in 1999 and was slated for demolition to make room for a CVS drugstore. However, the CVS was built down the street and the Newington Theatre sat abandoned, awaiting its curtain call until June 2002 when demolition finally began.
