Opened on November 12, 1930 with Charles ‘Buddy’ Rogers in “Follow Thru”. The York Theatre was originally built and owned by Abraham Garbose and planned by architect Albert J. Smith, but for reasons unknown it was completed to the plans of architect William G. Upham.
The York Theatre operated continuously as a theatre until closing sometime in the 1960’s, along with Athol’s other theatre the Capitol Theatre. After the York Theatre closed it became became a temporary courthouse, a dance studio, and then a teen center. Most recently it housed a candlepin bowling alley and a bar/lounge located in the lobby portion of the theatre, this closed in 2012. The York Theatre still stands vacant today as a reminder of Athol’s past, the theatre is intact and still retains many of its original architectural features and lighting fixtures.
