Broadway St and Main St,
Chicopee Falls, MA

Unfavorite No one has favorited this theater yet

A small neighborhood theater located on a hill at the intersection of Broadway and Main Streets in the Falls area. Catering to the residents of a factory area and Westover AFB, the Falls opened only on weekends during its final years of existence. As industry left and the air base diminished under the Nixon administration, urban renewal changed the face of the area, the Falls became history.

This Theatre has a virtual clone in the still existing Liberty Theatre at 739 Liberty St. in Springfield, Ma. The projection booth entrance was located upstairs in the small non-theatre rental office area.
