Lawrence Central Theater

The Central Theater in Lawrence, MA was the last single-screen theater operating in the city when it closed in 1986. At one time, Lawrence had as many as 8 single-screen theaters in operation around the city, with most of them located on Broadway. I took these photos after the Central Theater closed, and as you can see it’s in pretty bad shape. In its heyday, this must have been a beautiful theater. Anyone remember going to the Central? Blog-in and let us know.
