A medium sized theatre in downtown Providence, the 1,786-seat Emery Theatre was opened October 26, 1914. It opened with Marcus Loew’s vaudeville plus movies. The proscenium was 38ft wide and the stage 32ft deep. In December 1914 Mae West appeared here.
In 1927 it was renamed Carlton Theatre. It was used through much of its existence as a second-run or move-over theatre. The Carlton Theatre was closed in March 1954 and was demolished later in 1954. A parking lot is on the site today.
