The Theatre Historical Society on-line archive has the MGM Theatre Report for the Cameo in Mattawamkeag; it’s Card # 405. Street address is not given. Town name is misspelled. There is an exterior photo dated July 25, 1947. Condition is not given. The report states that the theater opened in 1910, and had 250 seats. The 1940 population was 843.
