The Needham Theatre was opened on February 11, 1926. The cinema closed in 1989, but continued to stand, vacant and derelict, before it was finally demolished in August through October of 2001.
The property has long been tied up in complex litigation involving a divorce and a defaulted mortgage, and remains undeveloped.
During its last few years of operation, it became part of the Sack Theatres chain, which was subsequently acquired by Loews in 1988. Loews apparently did not have much use for this decades-old suburban town center theatre, and it closed the following year.
Any further information would be appreciated. I think it had three screens when it closed, but I’d like someone to verify this.
