About
The historic Colonial Theatre originally opened in 1915 and is the oldest continuously operating movie theatre in the United States. Now, after a series of renovations and improvements, the 300-seat Colonial offers state-of-the-art digital projection and surround sound for independent and world cinema, hosts Grammy award-winning performing artists, family entertainment, and community events from May through October—all without losing the intimate charm of a vintage summer theater. The Colonial Theatre is on New Hampshire Registry of Historic Places and was named “Best Vintage Movie Theatre” by Yankee Magazine.

Wonderful Place

We’ve visited Bethlehem many times and have always wanted to check out this theater. So glad we did! The staff is very friendly and the theater itself is very quaint and brings you back to the past. We will definitely return on our next visit up north.

PERFECTLY PERFECT
Sep 2019
Went to see Bela Fleck and Abigail Washburn and it was more than fabulous. The theater is so conducive to live music and a small enough venue that every seat is perfect. Highly recommend.

The Colonial has been renovated and re-equipped with state-of the art sound, projection and lighting equipment to support nightly entertainment. Residents and visitors in the region have found this theater to be a well managed and friendly center of entertainment in a small community offering convenient pre- and post theatre dining.

The volunteers at the Colonial Theater were both welcoming and helpful. As you looked around there were friends greeting friends. A couple of people were kind enough to strike up a conversation with us (we're pretty introverted). What a great venue. Thanks.

Entertainment gem hidden in plain sight in the middle of the White Mountains
Oct 2018 • Couples
We had driven through Bethlehem many times over the years but had never been to this theatre. We were there for one of our favorites, folk singer/raconteur Greg Brown.

The experience could not have been better. The volunteers running the series were super-friendly, the seating was great, and the sound was fantastic.

We'll definitely be back!

Great Entertainment Value and Unique
Aug 2018 • Family
We love old movie theaters and artsy films that don't play at other larger venues. We were not disappointed for we went to see the Mr. Rogers' movie that we could not find playing anywhere near our home.

Good old days movie theatre
Oct 2017 • Couples
During our recent vacation in the White Mountains area we visited this lovely place two evenings in a row. Watching a film there, while tucked up with a blanket courtesy of the place, is really a unique experience! As a matter of fact, the second time we were the only spectators in the hall...
The staff is very friendly and that's too enhances even more the experience.
The film selection is also great and of high standards.
A true must for any movie lover!

The Colonial Theater is located in a sweet little village which is decorated beautifully for summer. It boasts of being the longest running theater in the USA - lovely place!
