Information for this tour was contributed by Roger Katz.
General Cinema operated this theatre from November 1, 1956 until February 14, 1972.
The United Theatre closed in 1984. It had closed for good in November 1983, but it was then reopened without permits and operated illegally for four days in 1984 before the town shut it down. The United was purchased by the Westerly Land Trust in 2006 and has been undergoing restoration since then to reopen as a performing arts center. It reopened in 2014.
