Information for this tour was contributed by Ken Layton.
The Blue Ox Theatre was a single screen 600 seater built around 1930 and was originally called the "Graham Theatre". The theater was at one time owned by Fred Thibodeau who also owns the still operating Skyline Drive-in theater also in Shelton. When the Blue Ox closed in 1962, all the projection and sound equipment was transfered to the then just built Skyline Drive-in. The Blue Ox was demolished a long time ago and currently a Safeway grocery store occupies the site (across the street from the currently operating Shelton Cinemas a.k.a. Franklin Plaza Theater).
