QUINCY, MA — A nonprofit organization is trying to save the Wollaston Theater. The 83-year-old theater has been closed since 2003 and is in need of major repairs.

The single-screen movie theater, known to locals as “The Wolly,” has been closed since 2003, and is in need of major repairs.

Quincy Mayor Thomas P. Koch requested that Street-Works purchase the aging building so it could be preserved, according to the mayor’s office. Koch said the deal will give some time for a nonprofit organization to raise money and secure grants to restore the theater.

Here’s the full story in The Boston Globe.

Unlike some old closed theaters which are in a near-hopeless state, the Wollaston is not so far gone that it cannot be restored.
