Opened prior to 1941, this village theatre existed in the late-1950’s (already closed) when I used to drive through the area. By the 1970’s (perhaps earlier) it was gone. Information on this theatre would be appreciated.

This vacant lot is where the Moosup Theatre used to be located.

Wartime item in Boxoffice magazine, November 7, 1942, about raising money for Christmas packages to send to servicemen from the area:

“Mr. and Mrs. Clyde Hess of Moosup initiated the idea of sending every boy from Moosup, Central Village, Sterling and Oneco a Christmas package, and donated the Moosup Theatre for two nights. Some $450 was raised for the packages, and the well-known operators made columns in the local press.”
