My Wife has been going to Hampton Beach all of her life, and she said the movie theater was upstairs next to where the mini-golf is. Her & her Mom were walking by the stairs in 1975, and there was a poster for Jaws there, and she begged her Mother to take her to see it, but her Mother said no. She loves sharks and always roots for them in movies. We made up for it 40 years later in 2015 when I took her to see Jaws on the big screen presented by Fathom Events.

The Theatre Historical Society archive has the MGM Theatre Report for the Casino Theatre at Hampton Beach; it’s Card # 488. But there is no information on it at all except for an undated exterior photo which was probably made about 1950.

This postcard is great because it shows the Casino before the addition of the ballroom. The section farthest from you is the casino (changing rooms, bowling alley, whatever) and the section nearest to you with the two towers was the theater/opera house. The ballroom was added next to the theater. Under the ballroom is Funland… with wooden floors and soem really old skeeball machines. Under the theater is the “casino mall” which is a series of very old mechanical games, like steeple chase and a wildwest shoot'em'up. The theater itself has more games, mostly coin operated.

You should go. Fireworks on the beach every wednesday from here till August.
