The Nugget Theater was opened in 1916. It was destroyed by a fire in 1944.

In 1951, a new Nugget Theater was built and opened a couple of blocks away on S. Main Street. It has its own listing on Cinema Treasures and is now the 4-screen Nugget Theaters.

The Nugget Theatre was the subject of a few paragraphs in an article about Dartmouth University in the February, 1923, issue of George Jean Nathan and H. L. Mencken’s magazine, The Smart Set. The operator of the Nugget, angered by the rowdy behavior of undergraduates attending the shows, closed the theater, precipitating an “outrage meeting” by the students in the street. After two days, the manager reopened the Nugget, but the rowdy behavior in the theater continued. Kids those days!
