Opened in 1938, the Randolph was the only movie theatre in downtown Randolph, a southern suburb of Boston. It replaced movie shows at the 19th century Stetson Hall. Any additional information will be appreciated.

The Randolph Theatre was included in the MGM Theater Photograph and Report project. There is an exterior photo on the report dated April 1941. The theatre entrance was in the middle of a one-story business block, with the Brockton Gas Light Co. to the left and R.E. Lyons and Randolph Drug to the right. The theatre had a triangle marquee with “This Thing Called Love” posted on it. The Report states that the theatre is at 68 North Main, that it has been playing MGM product for 3 years; that it was built in 1938, is in Excellent condition, and has 702 seats, all on one floor. There are no competing theaters in town, and the 1940 population was 7.600. This info replaces postings to this page which have somehow been deleted. (very annoying)

I didn’t realize that the Randolph Th. was set so far back from the curb. (The MGM Report photo was taken head-on from the street). Note in the background a white building with columns across the front- I wonder if it is Stetson Hall, the town’s previous cinema, and still standing today.

Ron, you are correct: that is Stetson Hall in the far center background of the photo.
