The Theatre Historical Society archive has the MGM Theatre Report for the Jax. It’s Card # 477. There is an exterior photo taken May 16, 1941. It’s obviously the same building as pictured in the Street View. The Report says that the Jax is on Main St. in Colebrook, that it’s in Good condition, built in 1939. It’s showing MGM product, and has no competition. There re 518 seats, apparently all on one floor.

There’s slightly different information on this page from The Cinema Data Project. The page says that the opening date of the Jax Theatre was September 1, 1938, with Love Finds Andy Hardy. The house closed in the fall of 1957 but reopened on April 27, 1958. The Jax closed for the last time in December, 1973. The last movie shown was Godspell.

Another house built by John B.“Jack” Eames, the Jax Jr. Cinema, is still in operation at Littleton, New Hampshire.
