News About This Theater
- May 17, 2013 — Cabot Street Cinema in Beverly for sale
Opened in 1920 as the Ware Theatre with seating for 1,450. It was closed in 1950 for safety reasons following the discovery of a sagging roof beam. It was rectified and reopened on October 15, 1965 and renamed Cabot Theatre.
Belying an elegant lobby and sizable interior, the Cabot Street Cinema’s façade doesn’t do justice to this local gem. The Cabot Street Cinema Theatre is one of a handful of early-20th century theatres that is still showing movies in an area known more for its megaplexes.
The Cabot Street Cinema Theatre has been open almost continuously, and was only closed briefly in the 1970’s before the Le Grande David magic troupe bought and refurbished the theatre for their magic shows. The famous magic troupe continued showing a large mixture of films to compliment the stage acts. It was closed in spring of 2014. In November 2014 the building was sold and re-opened in February 2015 as a performing arts center.
