Theater Revival

[click image to enlarge]

The Boston Globe reports that a purchase and sale agreement for around $1.4 million was recently signed for “Wolly Theater.” The arts community is interested in restoring this gem of a building, listed on the National Register of Historic Places, for use as a movie theater and community arts venue. This mosaic is one of the many details of this 1926 edifice which is one of the last intact single-screen theaters in Greater Boston and is widely regarded as a local treasure. I will continue to revisit “WT” and share updates.

Very nice that it will be restored.

I am so glad to hear this. I miss the old Wolly, but if the new owners do it right, it should be better than ever!

Saw my first movie as a child in the Wolly theatre, I can remember the ladies room and candy counter as I write. I am a huge supporter of the renovation, would love to return and take a seat.
