The Theatre Historical Society archive has the MGM Theatre Report for the Fairlee Theatre; it’s Card # 577. Address is “Main St.”, but I’m not sure of that. There is an exterior photo dated December, 1941. Condition is Fair. The report says the theater opened in 1900 (I don’t know if that’s accurate) and is showing MGM movies. There were 400 seats. The 1940 population of Fairlee was listed as 535.

The CinemaData list for the Fairlee has two seating capacities: 300 & 250, both lower than the MGM Report’s total of 400. CinemaTour’s listing says that the theater opened about 1914, and that it was in the Town Hall at 75 Town Common Road.
