I'd like to find out whether any of these Boston theatres, well-known as live stages, ever showed movies:
• Colonial Theatre • Wilbur Theatre • Shubert Theatre • Hollis Street Theatre (formerly in Theatre District) • Boston Theatre (formerly in Theatre District, demolished in 1926 to make way for BF Keith Memorial Theatre) • Tremont Temple (now a Baptist church, but has in the past also served as a theatre) • Columbia Theatre (formerly on Washington St in the South End) • Castle Square Theatre (formerly in the South End; later renamed Arlington Theatre) • Selwyn Theatre (formerly in Park Square, also called Cort Theatre)

Your best bet is to scan the listings in the Film Daily Yearbook back numbers still found at many libraries. Of course, the Boston newspapers back issues will also indicate this, but that is a longer search. Best Wishes.
