WARE, MA — The Casino Theater in Ware, which dates to 1909 and may well be the oldest purpose-built movie theater in the USA, is in danger of being demolished. Efforts have been launched to forestall the destruction and to allow more time for a possible rescuer to come forward. The theater last operated as a twin.

There is more about the effort to rescue the Casino at Examiner.com.
