There were two theatres that I have found listed for Union Bridge, in Carroll County.  In 1931, the 250 seat Ideal Theatre, and later by 1938, the Carlton Theatre which stayed open until atleast 1952 ( and much likely longer ) , which seated between 200 and 600, according to sources. We have been having a little trouble locating information on the Carlton, and suspect the building above, on Broadway just off of Main is the old theatre building, built around 1937, but we're not completely sure.
..
Below is the old town hall, at 10 East Broadway, which showed movies under the name of the Ideal , until 1937, at which point the town had a movie theatre built, the Carlton. The building was also used as the town fire station for many years, and is now known as the Firehouse Studio. ( Any additional information and corrections would be GREATLY appreciated )

Below, several old newspaper ads for the Carlton from 1937 and 1938.
