The former Lisbon Playhouse reopened as the Lisbon Cinema on December 19, 1969, as noted in the January 26, 1970, issue of Boxoffice. The new lessee was long-time Massachusetts exhibitor Karl Doran. The theater had been bought by Anthony Corey in October, 1956, who had operated the house until 1963, after which it had been used only intermittently for community events.
