A 1936 directory lists a Luna Hall Theatre at 233 Main Avenue. Must have been the same as the Rainbo, with a typo in the address number for one of the listings.

The address is now a private residence, near the intersection of Main, Buttonwoods, and Inman Avenues. I don’t know what this area was like in the first half of the 20th Century, but there are no businesses around now. It’s a purely residential area and seems like an odd place to have put a cinema. This part of Main Avenue is not far from a runway of T.F. Greene Airport, which serves Providence. There was at least one other Rhode Island theatre that had this same name, and that was the Rainbo in Cranston.
