The gay nightclub will also contain Guest House Theatres – a two screen movie theatre showing gay-themed movies, so it looks like technically this one will reopen – just with a drastically reduced screen count.

The summary up top is wrong. The theatre closed in summer of 2011 (9/8/2011) not 2012.

Anyone know of anything going on with this theatre yet?

Roger Katz commented about Latchis Theatre on Jan 1, 2013 at 3:43 pm

The Latchis Theatre is listed in the 1920 business directory at 6 Flat Street. 6 Flat Street is around the corer, but is still the same building. However, the description above says this theatre opened in 1938. Was the one in 1920 at 6 Flat Street a different theatre in the same spot? Was it located elsewhere in the same building?

Roger Katz commented about Braintree Theater on Dec 27, 2012 at 10:15 pm

I believe Lyric is an older name for Braintree because in the 1938 FDY the seating capacity for the Lyric in 665. The next FDY I have is 1944 and the Lyric disappears while the Braintree appears also with a capacity of 665.

The large two-story windows on the Broad Street side of the building also seem to indicate a theatre space was there.

Are you sure this one is demolished? The building that houses GEM Printing at 307 State Street sure looks like it is over 100 years old. If you look at the roof on Bing Maps birds eye view you can see the roof peaks in the middle which seems to indicate the theatre was on the top floor of this building.
