Quick background about the theaters: Although separate theaters, both the Poli Palace and Majestic Theatre share the same building, along with the abandoned Savoy Hotel, in Bridgeport, CT. The theaters opened in 1922. The Majestic closed in 1971, and the Poli Palace in 1975. They’re currently owned/maintained, so they’re in fairly good condition, and the Majestic is used for prop and costume storage. The theaters began with vaudeville and silent films, moving into major motion pictures, and for a brief time, adult films.
