708 Broad Street,

I accidently came across a listing for this theater from a very early Pawtucket/Central Falls City directory.
It is listed as 472 Broad Street until 1925 and then the address changed to 708 Broad Street as it remains today.
The theater originally opened as the New Casino Theater in 1913 and changed names in 1919 to the Casino Theater. The words “moving pictures” was added to the theater location in the city directory in 1918. The theater ran until 1929 but I am having doubts as to the closing date.
I passed the theater name around to a few older citizens of Central Falls and they remember the exact location. I need to ask them for more information as to how the theater operated.
As a young teen in the late 60’s, I actually attended this hall for local rock concerts and was aware of the stage and what appeared to be a stage booth.
