From the same Waterbury website that most, if not all of the above information is coming from:

“The Star Theater, built in 1913, was at 314 Baldwin St. It became The Cameo Theater in 1933, The Win Theater in the 1950s, then The Spanish Theater, which became The Caribe Theater in 1964 and is now closed”.

Since this theater was last known as the Caribe Theater, that should be the name that it is listed as on this website.

Your timeline is slightly off. This theater was built in 1913 and opened as the Star theater.

The Win Theater was my “neighborhood theater” in the early 1950s. I remember walking or taking the bus to there almost every Saturday afternoon for the double feature Saturday matinee, as just about every kid who lived in the Washington Hill neighborhood in Waterbury did then. The theater owners had people pass out flyers outside nearby Washington and St Francis Xavier grammar schools on Friday afternoons with ads for the movies (usually westerns)that were playing. A serial and 3 or 4 cartoons were also shown. An entire afternoon of entertainment for 15 cents!
