Yankee Magazine Editors' Choice Award for The Prospector Theater

Yankee Magazine announced their Best of Connecticut Editors' Choice Awards for 2018 and named The Prospector Theater in Ridgefield as a "top-notch" attraction for the Nutmeg State! 

Here's what they had to say:

Lives forever changed. That’s not just some Hollywood tagline at the Prospector, a 1940 movie house rescued from demolition that’s become both a model for employment inclusivity and the state’s most accessible entertainment venue. The nonprofit four-screen cinema pulses with playfulness and pride, from its sparkly purple lobby walls to its must-see preshows starring employees, most of whom are disabled adults fulfillingly employed for the first time. Descriptive narration headsets and closed-caption glasses, low-mobility seating in prime viewing locations, and sensory screenings featuring turned-down audio, turned-up lights, and freedom to move about combine to make the thrills of movie­going.
