In the long list of movie theater circuits in the 1942-43 Motion Picture Almanac, there is an entry for Shea-Chain Inc. & Affiliates. Its address was 1540 Broadway in New York City. Among its theaters in New Hampshire were the Tremont Th. and the State Th. in Nashua. There was also a Tremont Th. in Claremont NH run by Sharby Theatres of Keene.

This was in the Nashua Telegraph in July 1974:

“The late Duke Ellington and his orchestra appeared and played on the stage of the old Tremont Theater, later changed to Daniel Webster Theaterâ€"now a thing of the past as the building has been torn down. I am not sure of the date that he played there, I think it was in the forties.”

My stepfather was the manager of the State and Daniel Webster theatre from 1966-1974 when the D.W was torn down and the State change owners. I actually helped the workman take down the D.W—which was heartbreaking for a young teenager I went to the movies 3 or 4 times each week and I loved it very much.
