The MGM Theatre Photograph and Report form for the Pepperell Theatre has an exterior photo dated May 1941. The theatre was in a large wood-frame building 4 stories high with a peaked roof. There are stores on the ground floor and it’s difficult to see where the theatre entrance is – probably in the center. The Report states that the theatre is on Main St. in E. Pepperell, that it has been a MGM customer for 2 years; that it was built about 1930, is in Good condition, and has 400 seats on the main floor and 124 in the balcony. There are no competing theatres in town, and the 1940 population of Pepperell was 2,700. In the 1927 Film Daily Yearbook there was a Community Theatre listed for Pepperell.

In addition to the Community Th. in Pepperell, the 1927 FDY also lists a Trabell’s Opera House in East Pepperell, with 500 seats, open 2 days per week.
