The Brighton Th. at 400 Market St. is listed in a copy of the Boston business directory, Issue 85, which I think is 1921; found the copy on Google Books.

In an Arcadia Press photo book about Brighton, the Brighton Theatre is mentioned and a small ad or program reproduced. It says that the theater was known as “The Barn” and that it opened around 1915.
