The MGM Theatre Photograph and Report form for the Metropolitan Theater in Leominster lists the Plymouth Theatre there as a competing theater. But the MGM agent did not fill out a seperate form for the Plymouth; this was in April 1941,

The Plymouth in Leominster was listed as being operated by the Peter D. Latchis theater circuit of Brattleboro VT in the 1942-43 Motion Picture Almanac. Latchis also ran the Rialto Theatre in Leominster at that time.

Here is an item from the January 3, 1928, issue of The Film Daily:

“Leominster, Mass. — Ground was broken this week for a new combination theater to replace the Music Hall destroyed a few months ago by fire. The new theater will be known as the Plymouth and will have seating accommodations for 1200. Thomas McEvoy who owned the Music Hall and who also conducts the Rialto here is building it.”

Architect was John Edmund Kelley of Boston. Opened October 12, 1928 with Wings. The theatre, silent at opening, was equipped with Vitaphone and Movietone sound within four months. The final movies listed were in 1962. The venue ended its entertainment life as the Silhouette Ballroom with dancing and live music in 1967. Demolished in 1969 as part of an urban development plan to provide additional parking.
