The Little Theatre was a rather obscure cinema operation in Wolfeboro, NH. It was located in an imposing white building which was built as a Unitarian Church in 1888. In 1912 it became a Masonic Temple after a remodel which removed most of the church-like architecture. It soon began to be used as an entertainment venue and was renamed Opera House, then Little Theatre which began screening movies.
In 1938 the front of the building was rebuilt. In 1995 it was purchased by the Village Players.

The Theatre Historical Society archive has the MGM Theatre Report for the Little Theatre. It’s Card # 517. But no one filled it out so there is no info. There is an undated exterior photo which shows a handsome white building. It looks like it could be the Town Hall, but that’s not the case. It’s the type of building which could be considered a local landmark and may still be standing today somewhere in Wolfeboro.
There was a single screen cinema operating in Wolfeboro in the 70s. I remember seeing Woody Allen’s film Love and Death which was out in 1975. Seemed to be run by some cinema enthusiasts as I recall their schedule mentioned extra speakers being installed for the movie Tommy.
This theatre remains open. It stages live productions but still shows classic movies every weekend. It is now called the Village Players Theatre. There is a page on their website that gives a very detailed history of the building, which originated as a church. The address is 51 Glendon St.
