The Cinema 1 & 2 opened in the early 1970’s in the Landmark Office Building, which later was attached to the Stamford Town Center Mall (next to Macy’s). Each side sat around 280. By the 1980’s, an adjacent former restaurant space was annexed to become Cinema 3, with about 100 seats.

In the late-1980’s/early-1990’s, the theater was expanded by splitting Cinema 2, and adding two more screens on that floor. On the ground floor below, former office space was converted into three auditoriums, bringing the total screen count to nine.

Crown Theatres performed an extensive renovation in 2005, adding new seats and wall coverings. Bow-Tie Cinemas assumed operation of this facility on November 17, 2006.

Obviously Joe knows his stuff, but what the City Directory lists in names is quite wrong, but since it’s historical record, here goes.

In 1978, listed as TransLux Cinemas 1 and 2, then TransLux Cinemas 3 in 1986 (then 1 and 2 in 1988-1993), and then in 1994/1995 changes to Crown Landmark Square.
