Here’s a link to the Patriot Ledger article. I am surprised to learn that the building is that old!

They did heavy-duty renovation work there, so that’s why the front, and the south side look “new”.

In older comments that I can’t find anymore (maybe on a different Quincy theatre), I recall people talking about a Sears building. Is this the same one?

Yes, there was a Sears (or “Sears, Roebuck” in those days) just to the south of the Capitol Theatre and extending all the way back to the parking lots to the rear (west). The empty lot of the demolished Capitol was taken over and included in the footprint and the entire structure was heavily rebuilt and modified for the Quincy Fair Mall. I didn’t really pay much attention to what was being done there at the time.

The City of Quincy’s development planning company has a cinema in their plans. It’s located to the rear of the Flagship site, one block to the south of Granite Street and next to the Burgin Parkway. The building will have 4 or 5 levels of parking, with the cinema located above. It’s in a rather obscure corner of the area. Of course, the cinema is just a suggested activity and would require some entity to commit to it.

And the building is now totally gone.

I went by the site yesterday and there was a crew grading the empty lot.

In the Street View photo above, if you pan left, you can see the cinema attraction board on the upper wall above and behind the Fedex truck.

This opened on June 3rd, 1988. Grand opening ad in the photo section.

Good bloody riddance, too. I was living in Quincy when the cinema shut down, the staff was unutterably rude, and the facilities decidedly mediocre.
