The move comes a month after the Seymour Board of Selectmen unanimously voted to vacate the premises by Dec. 31.
The Knights — specifically, Knights of Columbus Aurora Council 53 — own the building, but the town rents and operates the movie theater, which employs four part-time workers.

The questions relate to two major projects approved, enthusiastically, by Derby officials — the redevelopment of (Walgreens-owned) Red Raider Plaza on Pershing Drive, and the redevelopment of the old Valley Bowl next door into a Panera Bread and an Aldi grocery store.
