Lowell Tribune, January 1921.

The Grand theatre will establish a regular One Cent Night beginning next Monday night and every Monday night thereafter. Adult ticket 25c, two for 26c; children 10c, 2 for 11c. Special features will be shown, some of which would cost up to 50c to see elsewhere.

THE WRECKING OF THE GRAND THEATRE

The wrecking crew on the Grand theatre building has about completed its work and soon nothing will remain but the vacant lot.

Many of our people think that the wrecking of this building was a very foolish expenditure of money. It cost approximately $5,000 to wreck the building, and it will cost fully that much to erect the county garage with the material salvaged from the building.

That the building was well built was evidenced by the work the men had to exert to tear it down. The only fault found with the building was that one corner was sprung a little, and this could have been repaired with tie rods.

Had the money that it cost to wreck the theatre building been used on repairing the building, it would have made as good or better building that will be erected with the materials. In this way fully $5,000 of the taxpayers' money would have been saved.

A photo of the Grand can be seen here. Caption with the photo claims that this was formerly the Taylor Theater.
