A racy Italian double bill in 1959.
No, that was taken from a newspaper clipping and is all there was. The Providence Journal archives may contain a wider photo. My link of June 16, 2005 (q.v.) shows more. It is a postcard image of when the theatre was the Emery. Photos of the Carlton are impossibly rare.
I noted in my diary on September 28, 1962 (50 years ago today) that I went to a double bill here at the Fine Arts: Kurosawa’s “Rashomon” and Fellini’s “La Strada.” I also noted that they served (complimentary) small cups of Bolivian coffee.

The building that housed this theatre (on the second floor) was called Broley Hall. Today it is occupied by Our Place Tuxedos and Uniforms. The Casino was the first cinema in Centredale.
This was actually located in Middletown, RI, the town adjacent to Newport, and not in Newport itself.
A couple of friends and I saw the movie “The Spiral Road” here on August 18, 1962 after not being able to get into the play “The Glass Menagerie” at the Newport Playhouse.
An article on the history of the location appears in The Providence Journal, August 12, 2012. It includes images of the Cycledrome that had been located there
as well as a 1940 image of the drive-in’s entrance. Article with images.
I visited this cinema in late August 1970 to see the Sergio Citti/Pier Paolo Pasolini film “Ostia”, with Franco Citti and Laurent Terzieff.
Tinseltoes is correct. It is two blocks down from Carnegie Hall, and around the corner from the Carnegie Deli, which is at 7th near 55th, an eatery that is a point of reference for me.
No,unfortunately I don’t know of any.
It was a first-run art house for a considerable period in the 1960s. I remember seeing films here like “Family Diary,” “The Grand Olympics” “Woman in the Dunes.”

But, ScreenClassic, this photo was taken on September 15, 2011. So as of this date it is not demolished yet! PHOTO
Wesleyan itself has (or used to have) a state-of-the-art facility. Do they offer any programs for the general public? I’m thinking of what Clark University in Worcester and Trinity in Hartford (with its fantastic Cinestudio) do, each open to the general public.

Last week, on July 13, I attended a concert at the Casino Theatre, part of the Newport Music Festival dedicated to chamber music events each year. The concert, entitled “Notturno,” was well-attended. The opportunity to see close-up again this beautiful music box of a theatre was very much appreciated by all those present. The last time I had been inside was in the early 1980s.
