Did you know Athol once had TWO thriving movie houses?
On Tuesday, November 13, at 5:30 pm, the Athol Public Library will feature a slide presentation by film history enthusiast Jonathan A. Boschen. Mr. Boschen will present the significance of both theatres to Athol’s history as well as their architectural beauty.
A highlight of the presentation will be historic photographs of the 1930s that have been digitally scanned at a high resolution, enabling attendees to clearly see the ornate details of both theatres up close and help them understand how the two buildings brought joy to our town.
