Founder

Leo Redgate is the owner of the Fairfield Community Theatre Foundation. He has shown his film in progress, "First Time Caller" many times throughout the theatre's history. It contains many famous actors and cameos.


Theatre Construction Over the Years

The theater was once a single screen system, but in 1979 it was converted into a dual screen theater. There are many hints to the proof that it was a single screen. There are many stories regarding the theatre's changing construction. For instance, behind one of the balconies, there used to be an office. It was accompanied with a lounge, but in 1950, the owner decided to make the office bigger, compromising the lounge. The theatre contains an old lift, which would lift an organ out of the basement and onto the stage. Today, this lift is still operational. The theater was also home to actual stage preformances, but again, it was converted into a more modern theater in the 1970's.
