I don’t think the film mentioned was called “Erotica.” It had to have been EROICA, a 1958 movie about World War II events directed by Andrzej Munk.

The Johnston Theatre was on the upper floor of what was known as the Ferri Block. There was a variety store/spa, a barber shop, a pool hall, and in the basement a bowling alley. The entrance to the theatre was the door on the right. There was a small entranceway with a ticket booth and stairs to the theatre upstairs.

Johnston Theatre on the right, second floor. THis was probably the 1930’s or so. The trolley tracks on the right went as far as Hughesdale (Atwood and Central avenues.) You can see a trolley car to the left of the theatre.

This theatre was renamed the Italy Cinema for a stretch. It was programmed by Rolando Petrella of WRIB’s Voice of Italy. Other places in RI that had similar Italian programs during these years were the Hillside (Community) in Centredale, Leroy in Pawtucket, Palace in Arctic.
