The former Modern Theater in Brockton was located on East Elm Street in downtown Brockton. The map in your posting shows a section of the city near the north end of the city. Even the name of Main Street on that map is North Main Street. There was no theater on the tiny section of East Main Street.

The Theatre Historical Society archive in IL has the MGM Theatre Report for the Modern in Brockton. It was at 21 East Main St., had 700 seats, was in Good condition, was not showing MGM film product, and was opened about 1935. There is a note written in pen on the Report: “Renovated inside and out in 1944.” There is an exterior photo made in May 1941. It was a stand-alone building with a vacant lot to the left.
