This website claims that movies were shown here from 1919 to 1965.

Pettengill’s Hall, which is also called the Island Falls Opera House, is also one of the Town’s historic sites. This building was the center of the Town’s entertainment activities. It has been closed for many years, but was once filled with the town’s people, who enjoyed the movies, and traveling entertainment. Moving pictures were shown in Pettengill’s Hall from 1910 to 1965. The old movie projector is still there with several films which were the last to be shown.

I’m always amazed when someone lists a theater as demolished and it has no address. Unless your familiar with the area, you can’t verify the status of a building when no address is given.

My mother remembers seeing movies here in the 40’s.
