This theater originally opened in 1915 and ran its course by 1938 as evidenced by the Pawtucket/Central Falls City Directory.
I had the great fortune to talk to two brothers aged 90 and 91, that recall going to see the silent films at this theater around the early 20’s.
According to printed material, the Imperial Theater had one of the largest theater pipe organs in the country. The organ was elaborate for the theater and soon was replaced with a traditional piano. The acoustics were said to optimize the atmosphere for the silent films and the marquee enjoyed hosting the best pictures Hollywood had to offer at that time.
