"Curtains" for the Wolly
The final stage of demo at the Wollaston Theater is the stage/screen area. This theater was built in 1926 and originally staged vaudeville acts before changing to a film venue. My friend's father was the manager and projectionist at the Wolly, so it was great fun going upstairs to the candy closet and helping ourselves. Then we would head over to the trapeze swing, a leftover from vaudeville days, and try out our gymnastic skills. Please share any memories you might have.
