The Hot Pink Ribbon has been Cut! Renovations to Begin at Wilton's Prospector Theater!

This morning, Tuesday, September 15 at 11:00 am, Val Jensen and her sparkling team cut a bright pink ribbon and celebrate the beginning of their expansion to Wilton! Renovations are set to begin at the 21 River Road location this month with a target opening in the fall of 2021.

Jensen remarked, "Thank you to everyone who came to our ribbon-cutting ceremony today! This marks the beginning of construction and renovation for Prospector Wilton!! We‘re thrilled to bring our sparkle to you!"

The Prospector Theater will be bringing a new first-run movie theater to downtown Wilton, in the space currently occupied by Bow Tie Cinemas. Prospects, and popcorn, and sparkle – oh my!

The new location will be a four-screen, non-profit premium movie theater with the mission of employing adults with disabilities in an integrated and competitive work environment. The renovated theater, located in Kimco’s Wilton River Park shopping center at 21 River Road, will bring the sparkle, design, adaptive technology, and accessibility of the Ridgefield location to downtown Wilton. Renovations will begin this September, with an opening in the Fall of 2021.

A boutique version of the mothership Prospector Theater in Ridgefield, the new theater will offer a wide spectrum of jobs for Prospects (the name of all Theater employees) designed to educate, engage, and entertain audiences of all ages, while employing a wide spectrum of individuals who are traditionally underrepresented in the workforce.
