The MGM Theatre Photograph and Report form for the Hudson Theatre has an exterior photo dated April 1941. The Hudson was a prominent free-standing building about 3 stories high. There is a marquee along the front which is interesting because instead of having side panels facing up and down the sidewalk in both directions, it has a panel only on the right side. In the center of the marquee is the year “1920” or “1930” . Under the marquee are 4 sets of double French-style doors. On either side of the doors is a large and elaborate poster case. The Report states that the Hudson has been showing MGM films for over 10 years; that it’s over 10 years old, is in Fair condition, and has 570 seats on the main floor and 292 in the balcony, total: 862 seats. Nearest competing theatre is in Marlboro MA. The 1940 population of Hudson was 8,000.

The circa-1950 photo of the Hudson Th. on Pope St. is quite different from the 1941 photo in the MGM Report. The entire street-level front of the theatre has been up-dated and “modernized” for ken mc’s newer photo.
