Before getting into acting, Stallone used to work there.
“Ooh, la la” films were not common in this theatre at this time.
Only played a week here during this run.
“Rocky” was in the smaller Cinema II, left. “The Last Tycoon” was in the larger Cinema I, right. November 1976.
Providence was Cohan’s hometown.
This 1940 film piqued my curiosity as a film oddity, though it would not be my cup of tea. It documents a Roman Catholic Mass, with narration by Fulton J. Sheen. For those who are curious, it can be viewed complete on YouTube in a very poor copy.

“The Man Who Seeks The Truth.”
Its original 1925 release.
