This Weekend! 12th Annual Lawrence Film Festival

 

Theater Row in Lawrence, MA - ca. 1941

Broadway Street in Lawrence was once home to four movie theaters in a row. It was dubbed "Theater Row" and was listed in Ripley's Believe It Or Not for that very reason. This image was taken from a fabulous Curteich postcard, ca. 1941.

 

Head out to Lowell’s sister-city and support three nights of independent cinema!
