Tuckerman Hall (Official)
Architects: Josephine Wright Chapman
Tuckerman Hall was an early cinema in Worcester. It’s located inside an unusual three-sided structure, originally a women’s club, near the Worcester Art Museum and the municipal auditorium. The club opened in 1902 and was designed by Josephine Wright Chapman who was an apprentice of Clarence Blackall.
Many events took place in the building and cinema use is believed to have begun by 1910. The frame for the screen, with speaker attachments, is still hanging in the fly space; there are two old carbon-arc projectors, and an ancient box-office sign which reads “Moving Pictures - Adults .10 - Children .05”.
Today, the recently refurbished hall is owned by the Massachusetts Symphony Orchestra and serves as a concert venue. The beautiful auditorium has a proscenium thrust-stage and a balcony.
