Palace Theater Waterbury Presents Free Movie Screening Of MISTER WONDERLAND

On Saturday, March 26, 2022 at 2 PM, the Palace Theater will present Mister Wonderland, a film that explores the life of the great theatrical impresario Sylvester Z. Poli who built the Palace Theater in 1922. The documentary originally aired on PBS in 2021 and sets out to find what remains today of Poli's theaters and the communities they used to serve. Waterbury's Palace Theater is one of only two theaters left in Poli's empire. A short ceremony will introduce the film's producers and some of Poli's descendants at 1:30 PM.

This event is open to the public; tickets are free but required. Guests will enjoy free popcorn and a champagne toast. Everyone is invited!

Mister Wonderland was produced by New York City based Awen Films and was directed by Valerio Ciriaci and produced by Isaak Liptzin.

When it opened in 1922, the Palace Theater was the center of downtown Waterbury. Since its renovation and reopening in 2004 the Palace continues to serve as the heart of performing arts and cultural activities in the greater Waterbury region, presenting Broadway series and iconic concerts.
