This theatre in the Darlington section of Pawtucket had a stucco and creamy tile exterior that was described as being southern Californian. It opened in October 1940 with a seating capacity of 913. It ran primarily second run movies. One of the unusual features of the Darlton Theatre was a windowed-off soundproof crying room with 12 rocking chairs, where moms could tend infants while watching the movie. Financial difficulties forced the theatre to shut in October, 1977. It was later razed, and a bank now occupies the site.
