We have attended many shows here. Favorites would have to be Kathy Mattea, and Arlo Guthrie. But the Lions Club annual show is always a treat as well. I don't recommend the balcony unless you have short legs, or can get a front row seat in the upper section. But other than that there isn't a bad seat in the... More

Beautiful turn of the century theatre; a great place to see a live show. Good view of the stage from any seat. Nice to have a drink in your seat. Volunteer staff a pleasure.

The theater exists through the generosity of long time benefactors, and as such receives a wide variety of "revival" type shows and performances. A nice night out when you are in the area.

This was my first trip to the Flying Monkey! We went for Movie Night to see the Market Basket Documentary. A nice touch was that Alex Ray, the owner was there and he gave an introduction to the theatre and the movie series that will be running here. The theatre itself is beautiful and comfortable. There is plenty of leg... More

All the entertainment of the big cities on a small scale. After your event find yourself in the downtown charm of Keene, NH. You'll find a bite to eat just steps from the theater. It's a no brainer!
