This was a large, single-screen cinema in a suburban-style strip shopping center which opened in May 1949.
It was off Route 1 (VFW Parkway) in the Hancock Village section of Boston’s West Roxbury neighborhood, near the Brookline town line.
By the 1980’s, it was an independently run second-run house. It closed in the very late-1980’s or early-1990’s and I believe it was subsequently demolished.
If anyone knows more information about this theater, please post a comment here. Although I remember reading several newspaper articles about its impending closing at the time, I can’t find any of them in the online Boston Globe or Herald archives.
