You don’t mention if the theatres are actually in Taunton, but if you search by their names plus the location, here and at such sites as you may find something on-line. You might do best with local sources such as the main library, the local historical societies, the community’s archived records, the state historic preservation officer at the capitol, and reserach in local newspapers' back issues and ‘morgues’ for photos taken at or near opening. By far the largest repository of theatre data/photos in the USA is at the Theatre Historical Society which you can contact via their Ex. Dir. listed on their front page at: Best Wishes.
