This wasn’t a classic ANYTHING. But I am listing it here for historical reference. The Cinema 1 & 2 was a cookie-cutter mini cinema, featuring narrow auditoriums. Built 1968-70 as part of a now-abandoned urban redevelopment failure, the Meriden Mall.
There is nothing which made this place memorable or architecturally significant. Walls were of cinderblock painted dark blue. There was blue lighting on the screen before each film. Walls of the entranceways to the auditorium were covered with purple carpeting. And… that’s about it.
