The Magnet Theatre was open in 1930 with seating listed at 925 seats. It was owned by Sharby Theatres. The Magnet Theatre was in operation until sometime in the mid-1950’s. It has since been demolished. Any further information on the Magnet Theatre would be appreciated.

The Magnet in Claremont is listed in the 1942-43 Motion Picture Almanac as part of Sharby Theatres, Fred Sharby, of Keene NH. Sharby also ran at that time the Tremont Theatre in Claremont.

The Magnet Theatre building suffered a fire in March, 1977, according to this page from the Claremont Firefighters Association. There are no details, and the two photos were taken from down the block, but it looks to have been a significant fire and it probably led to the demolition of the building.
