Poli’s Palace & Majestic Theatres Memories Project
A special program in collaboration with The Trumbull Historical Society and The Trumbull Library.
Presented by Jay Misencik and Geralene Valentine – authors of the book by the same name.
They will show a slide presentation and narrate an interactive discussion with the audience.
The now dormant theatres on Bridgeport’s Main Street were built by Sylvester Z. Poli and opened in 1922 – quickly becoming a downtown social center. The theatres hosted live entertainment and silent moves before offering ‘talkies’ toward the end of the Vaudeville era.
The book was published in 2017 as part of a documentary-style cultural heritage project. Their first photographs for the project were taken in 1989. The most recent photos are from October 2016.
