I went snooping around this place, but it looked rather derelict but intact. There is a shoe repair shop let into the front of the building. The Concord NH walking tour lists it together with the "Norris Bakery" and I can’t really tell if they are saying Norris’s house with a mansard roof was the Concord Theatre or not. The building I know of as the Concord Theatre (the give away being the words "Concord Theatre" in ceramic tiles at the door and a ticket booth) has no mansard roof and surely was never a house. Perhaps he means the SITE of Norris’s house, but anyway this is the quote… "Norris Bakery/Concord Theatre 16-18 South Main Street. James S. Norris operated one of the largest bakeries in the state. In this building he made bread, crackers, and confectioneries from 1860 until the late-1920’s. During the Civil War, his business supplied two tons of bread each day to local military camps. The mansard-roof house directly south of the bakery, also built in 1860, was Norris' residence. From 1934 until 1994 the Concord Theatre showed motion pictures here. It is now a live performing arts theatre.
There were four auditoriums in Concord, NH used at one time or another for movies.
