Hi , does anyone have photographs of the items that they have from the Orie or photographs of the orie that they would like to share either from the inside or outside?
Fred is a Theatre Historian— he owns the gadgets that made the
clouds at the Oriental— and owns the “Buddha’s that were down
Fred McLennan is a retired theater historian who had developed the the cloud machine and owns all of the oriental statues.
I was told that there was a theater in Canton but maybe there isn’t. Also I was told that alot of the insides of the Oriental was relocated to the Stoughton theater. If it is still open ???
The theater was closed in 1971 at the 1601 blue hill ave address, Capitol Electric supply moved in and leveled the floor. I hear that the stars are still on the ceiling. Supposedly the interior of the cimema went to the Stoughton before it closed then on to the Canton theater.
If anyone has any photos of the movie theater I would love to see them or of Mattapan Square in the 1960’s-1970’s.
