This was an early 2 screen cinema probably built sometime in the 1960’s. It was located in the Riverside Plaza on Winchester St. in Keene.

I remember this as being the theater that I originally saw “Star Wars”, back in 1977. I don’t know much about it but I believe it was owned by the same people that built Key Cinemas on Key Road across the street from Riverside Plaza. Not sure about that.

After Key Cinemas opened they ran X rated stuff for a little while than closed. A hardware store moved in there for a while then an auto repair shop then finally it became a video rental shop where we went to rent the movies that we had seen there originally. It has since been torn down.

I saw Rocky Horror there for the first time. A Pizza Uno was built on the site after the building was torn down, now Aspen Dental.

They moved what locals called Keene Cinemas across Winchester Street down to a site off of Key Road just West of the Staples box store… Currently (2014)showing movies, saw The Wolf of Wall Street a few months back.
