The Prospector Theater was designed from the ground up for our mission of meaningful employment for adults with disabilities.
Designed for the Mission
The Prospector Theater is not a typical movie theater, it is special. Our four theaters have the best in digital and sound technology, and large comfortable seats. Each theater has stadium-style seating, equipped with microphones for speakers, and fully accessible to those with physical disabilities. A special elevator was installed to bring a physically disabled projectionist to our fully accessible projection booth, and to the front of our two largest auditoriums, for pre-show usher speeches.
Each theater has accessible and integrated seating at prime viewing angles. We have the industry’s best adaptive technologies for hearing and visually impaired patrons:
- Closed-captioning glasses that provide subtitles
- High-quality headphones that stream dialogue and provide descriptions of scenery, environment, etc.
- ADA "super" compliant
- 4 screens:
- Theater 1: seats 165
- Theater 2: seats 100
- Theater 3: seats 60+
- Theater 4: seats 16
- Unique mission-oriented artwork
- Training room
All sales are final; no refunds or exchanges will be honored.
The Prospector is a first-come, first-serve theater. We suggest that all our patrons and customers arrive at the Theater at least 30 minutes before showtime so that you can easily grab concessions and your favorite seats!
We can't always guarantee what theater your movie will be shown in. For questions about your showtime, please call our Box Office at (203) 438-0136.

The Do-Good-O-Matic is a restored and repurposed cigarette machine dispensing Prospect-made artwork and treasure. This showpiece, found in the lobby of the Prospector, was lovingly restored by one of our Prospect's fathers. Artwork and gifts created for the Do-Good-O-Matic are collaborative and creative projects from conceptualization to finished product, inviting local artists, supporters, and patrons to participate in the activity. These opportunities promote active engagement between Prospects and audiences.
Art and treasures from the Do-Good-O-Matic can be purchased with a $10 token, available at our box office. Each gift is one-of-a-kind, and purchasing a gift directly supports a Prospect artist!
The beautiful artwork sparkling throughout the Prospector Theater tells the stories of our mission. Prospect guided tours take participants on a journey of the building, discussing the story behind each and every installation.
