The New Theatre in Patten opened about 1940 and ran into the 1950’s. Apparently, in the 1951 Film Daily Yearbook it was listed as being on Katahdin Street instead of Main Street. (Both streets exist in Patten).

The Theatre Historical Society archive has the MGM Theatre Report for the New; it’s Card # 423. Address is Main St. There is an exterior photo taken April 8, 1941. Condition is Fair. The report says that the New opened in 1940, was showing MGM films, and had 370 seats. The 1940 population was 1,500. Usually, when a theater was only one year old, it would be described as being in “Good” or “Excellent” condition, but such was not the case here.
