ROCHESTER, NH — This story takes a look back at the years of fun at the Scenic Theatre.

For sixty years, going to the movies at the Scenic Theatre was one of the city’s most popular activities. Many area residents have happy memories of time spent there. Children walked or rode their bikes to weekend matinees. Dating couples enjoyed a movie and then a soda, or burgers, at downtown restaurants and soda fountains.

Interesting article, Michael. Thanks for this. I was aware of a place called Rochester, NH, and the Scenic Theatre, but I wasn’t aware of the fact that the multiplex cinemas that now dot most of America’s landscape really began to crop up in the 1960’s. I thought that the 1970’s and 1980’s and beyond were when multiplex cinemas really began to develop in earnest.
