The Central Theatre, located at Highland Avenue and Central Street was in the geographical heart of Somerville. It is part of a large apartment building that also has retail space on the ground floor.
The Central Theatre was an average neighborhood theater, seating 910. By the early-1940’s it was operated by Paramount pictures Inc. through their subsidiary Mullins & Pinanski. It had closed by the 1970’s.
Today the theater itself is largely intact, though missing seats. The former lobby is used by retail and was formerly a recycling center. Until recently, the tall stagehouse was used by a faux rock-climbing organization.
I believe that in it’s last years the theater was part of the American Theaters Company chain.
