News About This Theater
- Oct 15, 2007 — Connecticut Film Fest, Take 2
Dating from September 19, 1923, the Playhouse Theatre was operated by Playhouse Operating Co. by 1929. The New Canaan Playhouse has somehow managed to retain its status as a first run theatre despite having only two screens. It is a former single screen theatre that has been twinned. There is not a traditional marquee but a small wooden sign instead which is probably to conform with local zoning regulations. The theater is yet another victim of the COVID-19 pandemic, it was announced on December 8, 2020 that the theater would not reopen. The town of New Canaan owns the building and is seeking a new operator.
