The Theatre Historical Society on-line archive has the MGM Theatre Report for the Memorial; it’s Card # 516. Address is North Street. There is an exterior photo taken March 16, 1941. Condition is Poor. The report says it opened about 1922, shows MGM films and had 250 seats. The 1940 population was 2,100.

The MGM Theatre Report also stated that the Memorial Theatre was in a “community hall”. Winchester’s brick town hall, built in 1911, has/had a second-floor auditorium, but it was located on Main Street. The MGM report and CinemaData both say the Memorial was on North St. CinemaTour says that the Memorial Theatre was in the E.L.M. Memorial Community Center at 21 Durkee Street, still open today, but that facility does not seem to have had an auditorium. CinemaData also says it had 320 seats. It was open to 1953 or later.
