There is a photo of the former Grand Theatre on this page.

Here is a close-up of the marquee.

Behind the shallow, brick-walled front of the theater, which looks like a later addition, the main, wooden section of the theater looks as though it might have been built as a church. I wonder if this building has come full circle?

The Grand in Indian Orchard is listed in the 1927 Film Daily Yearbook as having 460 seats and open 7 days per week.

Saw a movie there in the 1980’s – interesting design – probably 700 seats all on one level, a flat wooden floor. Building had exposed slamnted wooden beams in the ceiling looked like it had been fairly recently renovated. I can see why it became a church later.

As my original post states in the first sentence, the Grand Theater IS located in Indian Orchard. I would assume, after reading my post, that my info stating that the place is used by a religious denomination could be considered a church.
