Horrible. Not much else to say about that.

Too bad it couldn’t be saved due to being structurally unsound and unsafe, and too bad that it was taken due to the owner not being able or willing to pay taxes on the building. I still remember the time when almost every city, town and neighborhood here in the Commonwealth had a movie theatre to go to. Growing up in one of the few towns that didn’t have a movie theatre, my siblings, friends and I generally had to go the theatres in towns that did have them, or downtown Boston, or Cambridge, relying on adults to drive us, due to poor public transportation in our town. Oh, well..that’s history, since I’ve long since moved out of that town.
