What a great place this was! My first memories of going to the movies involved seeing lots of Disney movies here. My understanding is that it was once an opera house, then was on the vaudeville circuit. Performers included Caruso, Abbott and Costello, and Houdini. It was a beautiful theater with a huge chandelier. I was so sad when it was torn down. I have great memories of this theater.

This is a great old place. While they do show the occasional blockbuster (ie Shrek) they mostly show the “artsie” films as mentioned above which is great since it can be difficult to find such films in southern New Hampshire. They also have a nightly movie trivia question and the correct answer wins you a free ticket.
