In a three block area of North Avenue, near Charles Street, there were four theatres at one time, including the Aurora, Peabody, Parkway, and the Centre. Just down Charles Street, is the Charles Theatre.
The marquee of the Aurora Theatre remained into the 1980’s, and the building which opened as a theatre in 1910 has been used as a church since 1979. The area is currently undergoing a transformation and it could be interesting to see what happens to the old theatre in all the changes.
The lot next to the Aurora Theatre was once the Peabody Theatre, later called Center Stage, which burned down in 1974. No damage to the Aurora Theatre was caused by the fire.
The theatre was remodeled in 1921 and again in 1960. Closed as a movie theatre in 1978 and is now the Solid Rock Free Will Baptist Church
The theatre building is in great shape and intact inside. Some parts of the old organ are still in the theatre.
