Located next to the Pawtucket River in downtown Pawtucket, the Center theater opened as the State Theater. By 1926 it had been taken over by the E.M. Loew’s chain and renamed Capitol Theater.  In 1948 it was remodeled to the plans of architectural firm William Riseman Associates and was renamed E.M. Loew’s Center Theater. It closed in the 1950’s and was razed after that.  Here is a link to a great photo of the theater before renaming it in 1948 to E.M. Loews Center Theater.   SEE HERE..
