Event Details

A Theater Near You

When did movies first arrive in New Hampshire? Where did they play? Who presented them? Who saw them? When and where were the state’s first movie theaters constructed? How did a transient new medium run by traveling showmen become one of the most popular and enduring pastimes of the 20th century? This program explores these questions and more as Jeffrey Klenotic presents examples from his ongoing research, which aims to produce a digital archive and interactive map charting every venue where movies played in the Granite State from the medium’s origins in 1896 to the rise of television in the 1940s. Those attending will be welcome to share their own knowledge of local movie venues and their own memories of “going to the movies.”
