Puppet House Theater
128-132 Thimble Islands RoadBranford
The Puppet House Theater, a beloved Stony Creek/Thimble Islands National Register Historic District landmark, is available for sale. Constructed ca. 1895 as a silent movie house, the site has had a long history as a performance space for community theater groups, professional summer stock, local bands, artists, and, more recently, the famous Sicilian Puppets of Sebastiano Zappala. During WWII, however, the building was transformed for a time to accommodate a different kind of production: factory production of parachutes to aid the war effort. Two properties on the site are being sold together as one: #128, Puppet House Theater building (2,813 SF) and #132, a multi-purpose building (598 SF). The property has potential for commercial and/or residential reuse.
