We saw a movie at the Colonial Theatre instead of a live act. We loved the theater but were so saddened that there were only a handful of us enjoying the historic movie theater. Perhaps a concert movie run on a Wednesday night isn't for everyone, but the price wasn't bad. Half of our group got in for 1/2 price... More

We saw for the first time Ruthie Foster in concert. She was great! There were no bad seats in the hall. The sound was terrific. There was room to dance if you wanted to. We had a very fun evening. The tickets were so reasonably priced. We would go again when we return to NH.

also went to see Ruthie Foster, the venue was excellent, the show was awesome, a historic Theater in a historic town in the most beautiful White Mountains. My only disappointment was that the Town of Bethlehem rolls up the streets early, so not much to do downtown while waiting for the concert. Looked like there were many awesome shops to... More

We went to see Ruthie Foster in concert last night at the Colonial Theater in Bethlehem. It was OUTSTANDING!! We love this theater. The movies and concerts they have there are always very enjoyable and unique. They have a great snack bar and even serve wine--that's always a good thing! The only problem was the people behind us and to... More

The Colonial Theater is a throw back to the days when going to see a movie or a musical group was an event. There are blankets if you are chilly, there is beer and wine and popcorn with REAL butter. There is plenty of room (even to dance...yes last night's Ruthie Foster concert was filled with dancing and singing!!!). It... More

Yup!!! Not only is dancing allowed at The Colonial's live events, it's encouraged. So is kicking back on the patio and having a beer or sipping wine while waiting for the show to start, or even during the show. Great hall, great bands, great sound, great lights, good vibes all around!!! Worth the trip up to the White Mountains.

Whether it's a movie, live music, fundraiser, or school performance the Colonial is an awesome place to be. Warm and friendly staff add to the enjoyment of going to this classic well-cared for theater that has been active since 1914. The outdoor patio is a great addition where you have a drink and chat with friends.

We were in the area and saw posters for their talent show. It was free and we thought, "why not?" Popcorn with real butter, a glass of wine and some song and dance. Made for a fun night while visiting the area.

From Boston to Nashville and MASS MoCa, this charming 300-seater was a special place to hear one of our favorite musicians on a hot summer night! Pick your own seats in the section you purchased, then, while waiting for the show, throw back a few with friends on the outdoor patio... A laid-back, throw back that will not disappoint!
