When i biked by last week, i saw the Masonic symbol and there were the last movies on the marquee. i’ll have to check my camera.

the marquee pic on this googlemaps image is from ‘08 i believe. that was a pacino film.

A movie house called the Masonic Theatre was located upstairs in the Masonic Block in North Conway. It burned in 1930. The North Conway apparently replaced the Masonic Theatre, either in the same building, repaired, or in a new building, that same year. I had Boxoffice references for all this, but my browser crashed and lost the post, and I don’t feel like looking it all up again.

The Masonic symbol seen on the building in the photos Lost Memory linked to above show that theater and temple still shared a building long after the fire. The building looks fairly old (though New Englanders have long had a habit of building new buildings in the colonial revival style) so my guess would be that it’s the building that burned in 1930 and it was repaired. I have no idea how long the Masonic Theatre had operated before the 1930 fire, but the name North Conway Theatre definitely dates from 1930.
