Also, the 1971 list is not complete, as it does not include the State, Mayflower, Pilgrim, or West End. It also does not include the RKO Boston/Cinerama, but that might have been closed for subdivision by 1971. (And it doesn’t include the Cheri because that was still open in June 2001.)

No idea, never heard of it. That 84 Beacon Street address today belongs to the Bull & Finch (aka Cheers) !

Great work Ron, any idea about the Townhouse theatre mentioned on that list?

This Boston Phoenix article shows a photo of the Pru Cinema.

I got the address from this sidebar, which listed Boston’s movie theatres of 1971, and what happened to them.
