The MGM theatre Photograph and Report form for Sanford Hall in Medway has an exterior photo dated May 1941. The cinema was located in a large, rectangular brick building set back from the street. The second floor of the facade has 5 big Palladian-style windows in a row, with a fancy cornice above. On the ground floor there are 4 bays and it’s not clear which one contains the entrance to the theatre. There is no marquee. The Report states that the theatre is on Village St., that it has been showing MGM product for 2 years, that it’s over 15 years old and in Fair condition, and has 300 seats on the main floor and 40 in the balcony. There are no competing theatres in town and the 1940 population of Medway was 3,200.
