​​​​​​​​​Poli’s Palace & Majestic Theatres Memories Project brings to life the two magnificent dormant theatres on Main Street in Bridgeport, Connecticut.  Complementing architectural photos of the theatre interiors, people share memories of their time spent at the two theatres.  The theatres, built by Sylvester Z. Poli, opened in 1922. They closed in the 1970s.
