TivFan: The Colonial was previously known as the Fairyland and subsequently as the Rialto, the name under which it is listed here on CT.

Nope. Further research shows that the current Palmer Opera House was not the Peerless Theatre. The Peerless was opened by Wesley Gross on August 21, 1914 on Main Street, next to his meat business.

I notice the above ad says “Opera House” in the bottom corner. Could the Peerless / Cuba Theatre have been the same as the Palmer Opera House in Cuba on West Main Street which is currently undergoing renovation?

The Adelphi Theatre opened on July 7, 1913 on the corner of Elm Street and Church Street. It is unclear from internet map views if the building that is currently on the northeast corner of that intersection is the former theatre.

The Gem Theatre, which was also on Elm Street, had opened in 1907. Both theaters came under the same management in 1914.

In 1918 the Colonial is listed at 20 W Elm Street which is around the corner. It may have had a previous entrance.

The 1918 New England Business Directory lists a Greenwood Garden Theatre showing motion pictures on Peaks Island. Could this have been the same theatre?

The nightclub is closed and the building is currently vacant.

Roger Katz commented about Carpenter Memorial Library Auditorium on Feb 26, 2014 at 9:59 pm

Not sure I’d consider this a movie theatre. Hundreds, if not thousands, of libraries across the country periodically show older movies for free or a small admission charge. To me that doesn’t qualify it as a movie theatre.

Roger Katz commented about Arnett Theatre on Feb 26, 2014 at 4:05 am

From Bing and Google views this theatre appears to still be there in massive disrepair. The ceiling appears to be full of holes and half of the front facade has disappeared between the time of the Bing birds eye view and the Google street view.

The correct spelling is “Jewel”.

In 1920 a Bijou Theatre is listed at 49 Weld Street. Anyone know if this is the same theatre?

The cinema portion of LPF Studios closed at the end of 2012 due to lack of attendance.

1492 N Hyatt St. A post office now stands on the site although it appears from street view that the roadside marquee is still there.

It is closed now. No showtimes online, no answer at the phone number, and listed as closed at Zvents.

It appears from checking online showtimes listings that this theatre has reopened albeit with only one screen.

The Auditorium is still there as you can see at http://www.cinematour.com/tour/us/22965.html but I have not been able to find if it is still used.

Roger Katz commented about Bellevue Theatre on Feb 10, 2014 at 1:51 am

I don’t think this should be listed as demolished. It is still there in all street views and satellite views.
