The Dixwell Theatre was opened in 1916 and was expanded to 400 seats in 1926. It was badly damaged by a fire in 1937 and was rebuilt in a streamline Moderne style, reopening in 1938.
I used to work down the street from it and for a while it housed the CT Associated Press New Haven Bureau in the upper floors and it had a neon sign saying “On the Air” on the outside on the corner of the building. After closing it went to retail use and the building was demolished in 2016.
