Originally built as a livery stable, then a garage, the Fine Arts Theatre opened on June 29, 1949 with Anton Walbrook in “The Red Shoes”. This charming, independently owned triplex has managed to remain in business for decades despite the competition of nearby megaplexes. The first time I visited the Fine Arts Theatre was in the 1970’s when the theatre primarily exhibited foreign and independent films (I saw “Cousin Cousine” there).
The theatre showed mainstream first run fare. The main auditorium features Asian-style artwork on the walls. The other two auditoriums, which I presume were built at a later date, are small and nondescript. It was closed for renovation in 2013, and money is being raised to install digital projection. It was reopened in the Fall of 2014.
