The Jewish Historical Society of Fairfield County, CT produced a documentary featuring family stores in Stamford, CT from their peak years as the center of downtown business through the early years of urban redevelopment and its impact. Downtown businesses on Pacific Street, Atlantic Street, Main Street, and Bedford Street were predominantly family-owned. The shop owners knew their patrons personally and served a diverse cultural community. Usually, the whole family was involved together in operating the business. There were bakeries, hardware/paint stores, shoe stores, stationery stores, fabric stores, jewelry stores, pharmacies, meat/fish markets, department stores, delicatessens/diners, and furniture stores to list only a few of the many businesses featured in the documentary. Run Time 75 Mins.

The parking lots adjacent to and behind the Avon Theatre are privately owned, heed the signs and consider parking elsewhere, you can pay for parking across the street behind Tutti Pazzi Italian Restaurant & CVS on Forest street sealed parking and outdoor parking lot. Street parking is free on Sundays.
