The Palace Theater opened as a vaudeville and silent movie theatre in 1922, but converted to movie theatre by 1934. With more than 3600 seats, it is still the largest theatre ever opened in Connecticut. It closed in 1975 and has been abandoned ever since. However, the power was still on inside for some reason, and lighting was still in place from a movie shoot in 2010, which really made photographing it much more convenient.
