In the 1942-43 edition of the Motion Picture Almanac, the Interstate Theatre Corp. of Boston is listed as operating both the Colonial and the Scenic theaters in Rochester NH. Interstate is also listed as the operator in the 1949 Boxoffice Mag. article mentioned above.

There is a short item in Boxoffice Magazine for July 16, 1949 which says that the Colonial in Rochester has been refurbished and renamed State Theatre and was due to reopen on July 15, 1949. This date conflicts with info above which indicates that the Colonial name lasted into the 1950s.

This is an old postcard of South Main St in Rochester. I’m not sure but I believe that the Colonial is shown on the left. View link
