In the 1942-43 edition of the Motion Picture Almanac, the Plymouth Theatre was listed as being operated by Interstate Theatres Corp. of Boston. Interstate also ran the Music Hall in Plymouth. Other New Hampshire theaters run by Interstate at that time were the Liberty in Ashland; the Bristol in Bristol; the Rialto in Lancaster; the Charkarohen in Lincoln; the Corliss in North Woodstock; and the Colonial and the Scenic in Rochester. Interstate also ran movie theaters in VT, MA and CT.

The theatre closed Sept. 2009 and was recently sold to a local restaurant owner. I will keep you up to date with his plans when they are available.

Although it is primarily a live performance venue, the Flying Monkey does still feature the occasional movie. There is a full service dining menu available during performances.

It no longer has 2 screens, it is a single performance space.

I saw Murder By Death here in the 80s. Vacationed in the area in the early sixties. Remember a faded light blue exterior.

Although the venue was lucky enough to only suffer minor smoke damage, the building will be closed for a days to clean up. per
