News About This Theater
- Aug 8, 2008 — Cate Enterprises & Boston Theatres (c. 1970s)
Opened as the Esquire Theatre on February 14, 1964. On April 8, 1969 the name was changed to the Orson Welles Cinema. Over the years two small additional screening rooms were added that were separate from the larger main auditorium.
The theatre specialized in first run art and independent films, and had some occasional revival series. On May 25, 1986 there was a fire in the theatre, and it was shuttered after that and the space put to other commercial use.
