SOMERVILLE, MA — According to this article in Sunday’s Boston Globe, the Somerville Theatre is haunted by a former patron, dressed in a flapper outfit from the 1920s.
“She moves the seats. One of the first nights I was working here alone I was up in the balcony, right by the railing. There was nobody else in the theater; all the movie people had left. All of a sudden I heard all these seats, as if there were several people getting up. I ran downstairs as fast as I could, but there was nobody there. No one had exited. I kind of took it as the ghost’s way of saying, ‘Welcome.’”
As an old employee I used to work on the seat repairs and I also expierenced some wierd going ons. Seats would drop or rise on thier own. The constant sound of footsteps on the upper balcony stair and upper lobby would send chills down my spine everytime it happens.
