Constructed in 1902 as the New England House Hotel, the New Milford was created by the firm of Buckingham and Taylor in 1920. A remodel in 1937 gave the theater its current facade. The theater was purchased in 1976 by Steven Barry, who reconfigured the interior in to twin auditoriums seating 126 and 260, and the theater reopened in 1982 as the Bank Street Twin.
In 1997, the theater was again renovated, this time to three auditoriums seating approximately 120 in each. Wall surfaces and fixtures were replaced and audio systems were upgraded to Dolby stereo in theaters 1 & 3, and theater 2 received DTS digital sound. New Irwin seats were installed with cupholder armrests, as well as new carpeting and draperies.
The exterior has been restored to show off its black and white Carrara glass facade and a pressed tin ceiling with soffet lights has been revealed under the marquee. In the lobby, a previously covered terrazzo stone floor has been restored.
