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’.

This theater opened in 1915 and closed in the mid 70s. A picture is in Images of America: Shelton on page 119.

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.
