The Bantam Cinema, according to its website, is the oldest continuously operated movie theatre in the state of Connecticut.
Originally opened as the Rivoli Theatre in 1927, it was later known as the Cinema IV, despite the fact it had only one screen at the time, it was later split in two. The Bantam Cinema still looks like a little red barn on a country road. It showed first run films and mostly art house fare. It was renovated in June 1997.
It was closed on March 15, 2020 due to the mandatory closing of all cinemas due to Covid-19 Pandemic. It was announced in June 8, 2020 that it would be closed permanently. A group has been formed to operate the cinema as a non-profit and it reopened in October 2021.
