Before the New Art Cinemas, Provincetown had a single screen movie house on the opposite side of the street. This theater closed and was converted into a jewelry marketplace in what was the auditorium. The back wall was demolished providing a view of the ocean. The former lobby, still with its pitched floor, had small shops on either side. The words “Provincetown Theater” could still be seen high above the exterior proscenium.
I recall vacationing with my parents in the mid 1950’s and wanting to see a Marilyn Monroe movie playing there at the time. I was out voted. Guess they didn’t want to cater to my dream girl obsession. The building eventually was the victim of a massive fire during the 1990’s.
