Bullock's Theatre

This theatre was listed in advertisements as being on Broad Street, “over Public Market” in 1908 and around that time. It was a different place from the Scenic Theatre on Main Street, which became the Capitol Theatre. It seems to have been near but not the same as the Bijou Theatre. It was renamed Bullock’s Theatre by September 1908.

To add a bit more confusion, the 1914-1915 American Motion Picture Directory lists a house in Pawtucket called the Scenic Theatre at 127 Mathewson Street. Also, a movie and vaudeville theater called the Scenic Temple opened in the Brownell Building in Pawtucket, noted in the April, 1911 issue of Motography. I’ve been unable to pin down the location of the Brownell Building. A different Brownell Building in Providence hogs all the search results.

The Scenic at 127 Mathewson Street was clearly in Providence.

This theatre was renamed Bullock’s Theatre by September 18, 1909, as relayed in ads and newspaper blurbs on that date. It was distinguished from the Bullock’s Theatre in nearby Providence.
