Opened in 1918 and closed in 1956, The Patriot Ledger newspaper recently did a story on the efforts to restore a mural in the entranceway ceiling. The mural, with frolicking cherubs above a banner saying “latest reviews of peace and war from all over the world'‘ will hopefully be photographed and redone.

In 2005, owner Dennis Anastos reconstructed the corner building into two townhouses and office space, thus it will never be a moviehouse again.

Eva Leonard was the theater’s pianist during the silent movie era. Thanks in advance, to anyone who can provide more information.

I was in this area last week, cycling through from Quincy to the very tip of Hull. The whole 6-7 miles of this hook is a current sleepy resort town, but bustling during the summer. I was wondering why I never saw even a small theater here as one is deserving of one here. They have a small boardwalk, shops, neighborhoods, sprawl and nice restaurants. They definitely need a single or twin theater soon.
