A newspaper piece on March 17, 1914 has this place showing the silent film “Tigris the Master Crackman.” The name of the place was now given as the Orpheum Theatre. There were frequent name changes for the place :Gaiety, Lyceum, Pastime, Orpheum, and who knows what else.

In 1908 this theatre is advertised in the Pawtucket newspaper as the Lyceum. See ad posted.

The Gaiety Theatre, per a November 29, 1901 piece in the paper, had the same address as the Pastime would have, High and Exchange. I believe the Gaiety (1901) became the Pastime in 1909.
