The Community Theatre was a twin screen movie theatrer located in downtown Fairfield, Connecticut. Opened circa 1923 as a vaudville house, it changed to an all film format in 1929. The theatre was extensively renovated in 1933 which included the sealing off of dressing rooms, the construction of a balcony, and a neon tubed Art Deco marquee.
The Community Theatre was closed by Loews Cineplex on May 10, 2001, but reopened in December 2001 as an independent movie house.
Its more interesting features include the still opened balcony (in only Cinema 1, closed off in Cinema 2), indoor box office and closed outside box office. Behind the screens still remains the orginal theatre stage (used for storage) and an intact proscenium arch.
The Community theatre was closed in early-2012.
