In the 1942-43 Motion Picture Almanac, the Bath Opera House was listed as part of the Mullin & Pinanski (M&P) circuit of Boston, an affiliate of Paramount Theatres. M&P also ran the Uptown Theatre in Bath at that time.

The Theatre Historical Society archive has the MGM Theatre Report for the Bath Opera House; it’s Card # 339. But no one filled it out, so there is no info, only an undated exterior photo.
