20 years for a theatre. The life spans are getting shorter and shorter.

My bad. Joe is correct. I misread the article and thought it had closed. I guess it will be closing, but has not closed yet.

So open for a while longer. Still only 20 or so years not long for a multiplex before biting the dust.

Still open, also seems strange how they own the theater right next door.

This always puzzled me too. While I’ve never been inside either theatre here, I think it’s strange that the other theatre is the more modern one (didn’t somebody else build it?) and that this one that National built is the less modern. You’d think they would have done something to fix that if they could.

Guessing that maybe the older theater will close when their lease is over and they are just waiting it out.

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.
