We are thrilled to report that The Providence Cinematheque has a new home! With help from the RI Innovation Grant, the property once known as the Paramount Office Supply at 819 Westminster St., was secured in November of 2015. Vacant for the last 25 years, the building and adjacent property will need extensive restoration and development. We are in the process of putting together a series of funding sources through Federal, State and City grant opportunities, that we hope will help us build Rhode Island’s new film Center.
Here are some photos of the of the 20,000 ft space as it exists presently as well as the adjacent lot which can accommodate close to 30 parking spaces.
