The Leroy Theatre was a historic theater at 66 Broad Street in Pawtucket, Rhode Island. The theatre was designed by architect John F. O'Malley and was built in 1922. It was one of the finest and largest theatres of the period in all of New England, built when Pawtucket was at its economic height. The theatre hosted vaudeville acts, silent (and then sound) movies, and all manner of theatrical productions and musical performances. It was closed in 1963, briefly reopened in 1976, and was again shuttered.[2]

The theatre was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1983.[1] It was demolished in 1996 and replaced by a Walgreens Drugstore.
