Methuen Memorial Music Hall (Official)
Previous Names: Serlo Hall
Although church-like in appearance, this beautiful building has always served as a concert hall. (Now with classic silent movies). It was constructed in 1909 to house the huge instrument known as the Great Boston Music Hall Organ. The big Walcker concert organ, imported from Germany, graced the stage of the Boston Music Hall (forerunner of today’s Orpheum Theatre in downtown Boston). Architect Henry Vaughan designed the building, first known as Serlo Hall.
In 1931, the building was acquired by Ernest Skinner of the Skinner Organ Company, and when that company became Aeolian-Skinner, the organ was completely rebuilt and returned to service in 1947, a year after the building had been renamed Methuen Memorial Music Hall.
The Hall today is a busy concert venue which also presents classic silent movie programs, with, of course, live organ accompaniment.
