The theatre opened in 1918 with vaudeville acts and other live entertainment. It had 1,101 seats with one main screen. Operated by B & Q Associates, it was remodeled in 1949 to the plans of William Riseman Associates.

In 1986 it was sub-divided to attract more movie-goers. It has opened and closed several times since then. In 1986, the theatre was renamed the Roxy Theatre, then the Attleboro Cinema and then back to the Union Theatre.

The Google Maps view is incorrect, but “frozen.” But you can see the theatre by maneuvering to the opposite side of the street. It occupies a corner site.
