The Theatre Historical Society on-line archive has the MGM Theatre Report for the “Branden” Theatre in Presque Isle; it’s Card # 433. But no one filled it out, so there is no info. There is an undated exterior photo. Most of the photos on these cards which have no information on them were taken between 1946 and 1950.

In 1963, the Braden was operated by Charles Brooks Theaters, headquartered in Ashland, Maine. Brooks Theaters also ran the Presque Isle Drive-In at the time, along with some other theaters in Ashland, Eagle Lake and Fort Kent.
