Looks like a revival of Meet me in St. Louis paired with Babes in Arms. 1951?

“After Joe Jarvis left about 1959, his former projectionist took over until about 1975 when the empty building was occupied by the Church of God for the next dozen years. The building was acquired about 1987 by Century Sheet Metal, Inc. which is still there today.” —Bruce Remick, Facebook comment

A Facebook comment about the Olympia: “My dad loved the movies there and the serials. I was able to get several of the serials on VHS tape. I stay over his house and he was like a kid. He told me Jacob Cohn wanted to fill every seat so he’d let you in with less than full admission price. I don’t know if the Royal Theater showed kids movies on weekend days. My dad would have been 13 in 1933.”

Someone’s Facebook comment: “We grew up across the street from this theater. My mom said in the 40’s they used to give you 1 piece of a dish set every time you purchased a ticket to the movie.”

A Facebook user wrote: “I have fond memories of spending Saturday afternoon at the Community theater, hula hoop contests and an older man with a bald head walking up and down the isle making sure kids stayed in there seats. I don’t remember there being any parents, just a maze of kids having fun.”

A Facebook friend of mine wrote: “I grew up on Redfern St. off Woonasquatucket Ave. and spent many days hiking through Centredale on the way to the railroad tracks. One of the ushers at the theater was a short, grizzly man we called Fourgee. We climbed the “cliffs” behind the theater many a time.” –RP

Saw something here on August 5, 1978 called “The Joy of Fooling Around,” according to my notes, an adult film from Greece. It was probably damn awful.

Probably the 1920s. The theatre would close for good in 1931 and be demolished soon thereafter.
