It’s right across the river from the Fairfield/Bridgeport border off Fairfield Avenue, in the Black Rock section. In the last 5 or so years it has been an increasingly trendy area, but not in the gentrification sense. Lots of indy music clubs, bars and it’s still in a neighborhood.

I finally went there in person last week. For a 12-plex, you wouldn’t know it. The height of the building is not too high and it’s more wider with trees in front and it’s very pedestrianized. It’s right behind the main drag a few blocks (Fairfield Ave) and behind it is the river. There’s substantial parking across the street and a parking garage attached to the theater, about 2 stories tall. Around the building behind the garage is a small crushed stone trail around to the other end, with benches, grass, etc. The marquee is at the end on the side. It’s not something you’d expect from a 12-plex. Very spaced out and there was thought in its existence in a residential neighborhood.
