I went snooping around this place, but it looked rather derelict but intact. There is a shoe repair shop let into the front of the building. The Concord NH walking tour lists it together with the "Norris Bakery" and I can’t really tell if they are saying Norris’s house with a mansard roof was the Concord Theater or not. The building I know of as the Concord Theater (the give away being the words "Concord Theater" in ceramic tiles at the door and a ticket booth) has no mansard roof and surely was never a house. Perhaps he means the SITE of Norris’s house, but anyway this is the quote… "Norris Bakery/Concord Theater 16-18 South Main Street. James S. Norris operated one of the largest bakeries in the state. In this building he made bread, crackers, and confectioneries from 1860 until the late-1920’s. During the Civil War, his business supplied two tons of bread each day to local military camps. The mansard-roof house directly south of the bakery, also built in 1860, was Norris' residence. From 1934 until 1994 the Concord Theater showed motion pictures here. Its unused auditorium was one of only two surviving downtown theaters." It has since been demolished.
Of course that’s not true either… because there were four auditoriums in Concord, NH used at one time or another for movies.
