Viewing: Photo | Street View

The Tower Theater opened on May 10, 1940 with a seating capacity for 600 patrons. This was a nice family theater in the Art Deco style. It was located at the corner of Watertown Avenue and West Main Street in Waterbury, Connecticut.

It was demolished in the late-1960’s to make way for new highway construction.

WAS, not IS. There is no spot for 54 Watertown Avenue anymore with Route 8 running right through where the neighborhood used to be.

My information says 56 Watertown Road, rather than Avenue. The Tower had Harrison Weisman as architect and first opened on May 10, 1940, with a reported seating capacity of 600.

There is no Watertown Road in Wtby. It was Watertown Avenue.

A small drawing of the front of the Tower Theatre and a photo showing a glimpse of the dim auditorium from the standee area illustrate an ad for Spongex rug cushion on this page of Boxoffice, October 6, 1941.
