Other than being twinned down the middle, this cozy postwar theater has changed very little. It takes its name from an older Granada Theatre which stood across the street and burned.

Moderne murals of flamingoes, herons, and magnolias against a crimson background line the sidewalls. Swirling Moderne style flourishes decorate the ceiling between the air vents.

The Granada Theatre was closed in November 2005. It was sold to a property developer who owns the adjacent Downtown Mall.

To all who are concerned – the Granada is scheduled to be demolished to make room for new development. If you are interested in saving the Granada be loud and be active. We can stop this if we only care enough to make our voices heard. Since the City bought it (with our money)– it is Our Theater. I can’t stand to think that it is going away to make room for more parking. A multi plex in the next block is NOT the Granada. Stand up and be counted or don’t complain when it is gone.

Some good news about the Granada: a group of volunteers has cleaned up and made needed repairs to get the theater reopened for a local film festival. They hope that these efforts may eventually lead to the theater’s ongoing revival. View article

A fellow CT friend sent me the article featured in the recent “CSWalczak” post. Nice story that shows with concerned citizens it can be done!
