The Garde Arts Center is one of the few remaining movie palaces in Connecticut.
Opened on September 22, 1926 as the 1,603-seat Garde Theatre, when the building was nearing completion, architect Benjamin Schlanger was consulted on the ‘stencil on plaster’ decorations in the auditorium. This former movie and vaudeville palace has been carefully and completely restored.
Now a performing arts center that still occasionally shows classic films, the Garde Arts Center is one of the most lavishly decorated theaters in the country.
