Blackstone River Theatre is a red-brick building located at 549 Broad Street, Cumberland, Rhode Island. If you are from the area, you know the location as "across the street from where Ann & Hope used to be!" We have a 34-car parking lot to the left of the theater and there is additional parking available next door thanks to our friends at Open MRI of New England. The main entrance of the building is in front through the wooden doors. (A sloped walkway to the left of the building offers entrance for those with handicapped-access needs or if easily negotiating stairs is a problem.) All BRT photographs courtesy of Aaron Usher III.
