The Manor opened on June 3, 1949 with “Little Women,” starring June Allyson.
“Beautiful or ugly, women all get married.”
Rossellini’s “Woman” (“Desiderio”) plus Gassman in “Shamed” (“Preludio d'amore”.) An Italian double bill that circulated widely, if slowly, during the 1950s and early 1960s.
It’s spelled Pier PAOLO Pasolini, not “Pablo.”
The location of this theatre was Thames Street at the corner of Gidley Street. It had previously been called the Theatre Comique until 1908.
She performed at a matinee on June 11, 1906.
“The Lady Takes a Sailor” and “Captain China.”
My first time here was with friends on June 26, 1961 to see a double bill of “The Apartment” and Elmer Gantry.“ Pretty good program.
Home movie of the Shipyard in 1963. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hD5jJ3QmSKQ
I went here once in the late 1960s for “Carmen Baby.”

If that is Buster Keaton’s “The Cameraman,” it is certainly being projected, without respect, in an incorrect aspect ratio!
The 70mm release of “Gone With the Wind” did not play there. It played at the Four Seasons (now East Providence 10) in East Providence. I saw it there. I thought it was an abomination for the way it cropped and vandalized the original movie’s aspect ratio. “This is Cinerama” played there beginning August 9, 1961. I submitted a comment on that somewhere below. Check it out.
I myself posted a photo in the photos section. It was a picture on the 1941 MGM survey of N.E. theatres. Did you see it?
I saw “Kiss Me Kate” in 3-D in Providence!
My photo from 1994.
That was my photo taken in 1994.
1980 re-release of “Song of the South.”
I believe the building on the near right is the Longeley Building, and the Court Street Bridge would be to the left of the traffic booth. Can someone verify?
