so i believe the Fine Arts was a small, regional chain? there was a westport fine arts 1 and 2 and the brookfield fine arts which closed down many years back. check the post i made from a few weeks ago about what we found.

A Kilgen theater organ opus 4144 size 2/3 was ordered for the Shelton Theater in 1928, but the order was cancelled; parts put back in stock.

In the 1960’s the owner of this theater changed the name to “Shelton Fine Arts Theatre”. It had sunk to the point where it showed Adult Films. It had sunk that low. (It was not a chain)

As a theater, that was it’s ‘Last Hurrah’.
