In her extraordinary autobiography, “Finding Me,” published in 2022, actress Viola Davis, who grew up in next-door Central Falls, mentions going to the Leroy Theatre with her siblings, probably in the 1970’s. She writes: “After that, we took our Easter money to Leroy Theatre to watch a double feature and eat either hot dogs or large bags of M&M’s. Seventy- five cents for a double feature and 35 cents for a big bag of M&M’s.” (Page 74)
