Piecing together some information from newspapers, ads for the Dorset at 515 Race Street ran as late as February 1981. The theater was then twinned and by May 1981 was operating as the Bay Cinemas, which closed in 1989. The Tolley Theatre appears to have been a dinner theater, not a cinema.

On the other hand, CinemaTour thinks that the Arcade was a completely different building at 515 Race Street. According to a WBOC story from 2014, this venue operated as the Tolley Theatre as late as 1995. In 2014 the owner, Gene Tolley, was operating a restaurant supply and catering business out of the theater and a building next door; he was considering reopening the theater but thought that the condition of some nearby vacant buildings might keep customers away.

The building that Kilduff’s thinks was the Arcade shows up on Google Street View at about 500 Race Street.

Something is way off here…house numbers on Race Street in Cambridge don’t appear to go below 400 and the proper ZIP Code is 21613. As posted, this site maps to the town of Vienna.
