Original Close Date of 1963 Believed Innaccurate[edit]

I grew up in Pawtucket and would walk to the theater on many an occasion with friends and/or my older brother and his friends. Movies I saw there included:

Night of The Living Dead, It, Taste the Blood of Dracula, A Fistful of Dollars, For A Few Dollars More, Chitty Chitty Bang Bang, Herbie:The Love Bug; The Good, The Bad and The Ugly; Bullitt

Since I would have only been 4 in 1963, and most of these movies were released later in the 1960's, I would suggest a late 1960's to early 1970's closure. Unfortunately, I cannot remember what grade I was in when it closed for movies, but I do remember it being open in the late 1970's for concerts.

A 1973 "Pawtucket Times" article written by Bill Loveless states "It's been two years since a movie flashed across its screen..." — Preceding unsigned comment added by RORIBR (talkcontribs) 19:05, 31 August 2015 (UTC)

It's not unusual for an old historic theatre to go through a series of ownership changes, opening and closing a bunch of times as it slowly dies. I expect that's the case here, but I don't know for sure. -Kzirkel (talk) 14:35, 1 September 2015 (UTC)
