Launched in May of 1949 with 425 car capacity for Armand Bourque. But the theatre made news in 1969 when John Laughlin, Jr. — then manager of the Sky-Ray D-I — was the first person in the state to be charged with violating New Hampshire’s newly crafted pornography rule for showing Russ Meyer’s Vixen. Laughlin was found innocent. The theatre would run another 16 years.
Opened on May 7th, 1949. Grand opening ad posted.
