Save The Wollaston "Wolly" Theatre in Quincy, Massachusetts from impending demolition!

The Wollaston "Wolly" Theatre is set to be demolished by the current owner this fall of 2015. This plan must be stopped! The Wolly is one of the last historic theaters remaining in Massachusetts. It was built in 1926 and added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1989. We can't allow this historic gem to be destroyed forever. From Wikipedia... The '''Wollaston Theatre''' is a historic theater at 14 Beale Street in Quincy, Massachusetts. It was built in 1926 and added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1989. In recent decades, the "Wolly" was a second-run discount movie house, run by Arthur and Yvonne Chandler. The theater was closed in 2003. After many plans to purchase it and renovate it, Jack Encarnacao, following Arthur Chandler's death, the theater was finally sold to Miao Kun “Michael” Fang of Weston, MA. Jack Encarnacao, ''Wollaston Theatre's future still uncertain after it's sold for $600,000'' Michael Fang is the owner of the C-Mart supermarket chain. The Wollaston Theatre was the venue for the last performance of the Plasmatic and Wendy O. Williams on their final tour in 1988.
