Although I was never in the Lowell Opera House, I understand it was a Victorian beauty. After a glorious start in the late 1800’s the theater suffered as the center of the city shifted away from Back Central Street. Although local theatrical groups presented their offerings at the theater, it ended its days as a seedy second-run house.
Like many other downtown properties, it was torn down in the name of urban renewal. The footprint of the Lowell Opera House still remains in the middle of a commercial block and is used for parking.
