The Scenic Theatre was opened August 20, 1910. By October 1910 it had been renamed Merrimack Square Theatre. I was never in the Merrimack Square Theatre, but I do remember it being torn down when I was in junior high school. Across the street from RKO Keith’s Theatre, the Merrimack Square Theatre had been carved out of corporation boarding houses associated with the Boott Cotton Mills, as I understand it. I also understand that it shared a manager with the other M & P property in Lowell, the Strand Theatre.
The Merrimack Square Theatre was still open in 1952, but had closed by 1955. It was one of the first major venues in downtown Lowell to be torn down in the name of urban renewal. It was replaced by, what else? A parking lot.
