Across the street from the Colonial Theatre… My dad took me down to see the remains after the fire… I never saw a film there, but imagine it was similar to the Ogunquite (Maine) Playhouse in ambiance… I’ve been told it segregated people of color to the balcony upstairs ( with teenagers ) but I have never been able to prove it. The Eagle Hotel seen in a link would also succumb to fire shortly thereafter. Today nondescript brick faced cinder block stores have replaced both the Scenic and the Eagle Hotel.

I went regularly to the Scenic in Keene throughout the 60’s. It always showed family type movies such as Disney films. I have many fond memories of the place.

The Scenic was open until at least 1968. I went to a “horror” movie with some friends for my birthday when I was in junior high.

Here is a really not very good photo showing the Scenic in 1938 and taken in the time after a hurricane had rampaged through New England.
