The Bristol Theater in Bristol NH is listed under Interstate Theatre Corp, 260 Tremont St., Boston in the 1942-43 Motion Picture Almanac. That circuit ran theaters in CT, MA, NH and VT in 1942, and is not to be confused with Interstate Circuit Inc. of Dallas TX, or Interstate theatres of Thomasville GA.

I recently acquired a small B&W pic of the Bristol Theatre taken in the fall of 1951 and a copy of a weekly newsletter called the “Bristol Movie News”. Scans of the pic and the newsletter can be viewed at the link below.

The theater was listed as “An Interstate Theater” in all ads which ran in the local paper while it was in operation. “Interstate Theater” also appeared in early stories in local paper stories regarding the theater’s remodeling in 1937.

I have tried to update the info I originally posted about the theater on at least 3 separate occasions, but my e-mails to Cinema Treasures were never answered so I gave up.

Articles about the theater from the local paper, The Bristol Enterprise, can be found on this web page:

The Bristol Theatre was not one of the Interstate Theatres which were located in Texas. Interstate Theatres, Inc. general offices were located in the Majestic Theatre Building in downtown Dallas, Texas and the chain consisted on around 200 houses in Texas and in New Mexico
