Theater Row In Lawrence, Massachusetts

From facebook:

Tom InMaine: At one time its been said that the City of Lawrence, Massachusetts had more theaters per capita than anywhere else in the world. One section along Broadway, called Theater Row had so many within a small area it made it into Ripley's Believe it or Not

The Empire Theater.

 Later became the Warner Theater.
Note the facade reading "Empire" has been covered up and a marquee added. The windows have also been changed.


Michael Williams: Program of the Broadway Theater in Lawrence dated 1931. This is the place were Thelma gave her 3 personal appearances in 1933 her last visit to Lawrence. The program says the Broadway was owned by Warner Bros

The Broadway Theater is at right. The sign says COBRA WOMAN and WHITE SAVAGE, which would be a Maria Montez double feature. This presumably would have been in the 1940's, when these movies were new.

Special thanks to the Minga Valley page on facebook and to Thelma Todd fan Michael Williams.
