Concord‘The History of the Concord Theatre’

The 2019 Brigade Lecture Series kicks off March 28 at 7 p.m. with “The Concord Theatre – Yesterday, Today and Tomorrow” presented by Concord native and author Paul Brogan. The Brigade Lecture Series, which focuses on New Hampshire history and culture, is held at the Pierce Manse, the home of New Hampshire’s only U.S. President. The series is free and open to the public but seating is limited. For more than 60 years (1933-94), The Concord Theatre entertained local audiences with a wide variety of motion pictures. They played everything from Ma and Pa Kettle or The Bowery Boys, to such deserved classics as Lawrence of Arabia, One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest and Moonstruck to name but a few. For all of those years, the Concord Theatre was the city’s only independent movie theater, run by a family as opposed to a theater chain, and facing all of the challenges associated with that independence. The Concord Theatre has sat empty since showing its final film in the late summer of 1994 but is about to be reborn as an important new theatrical venue in Concord. The re-christened Bank of New Hampshire Stage is scheduled to open later in 2019. The story of the Concord Theatre and how it survived for all of those years is an inspiring journey through Concord’s history and deserves to be told. Paul Brogan has spent most of his life in Concord. He grew up in a home near White Park, attending Bishop Brady High School. Brogan is the recipient of a New Hampshire Press Association Award in 2014 for his writing. His latest book entitled, The Concord Theatre and Concord’s Love Affair with the Movies is scheduled to be released this spring. When not writing, Paul hosts a talk show for Concord TV and volunteers for various local nonprofits. The next Brigade Lecture Series program will be held on April 25 and will feature the New Hampshire Humanities program, “The Music History of French Canadians, Franco-Americans & Arcadians/Cajuns.” To view the complete 2019 lecture series schedule, which runs through October, or for more information about President Pierce’s historic home, please visit
