Came here to see tape face. What an awesome venue. Been to the Wilbur in Boston, I would choose Colonial theater any day. The entrance is large and accommodating for large crowds, staff is pleasant (expected for small town/city living) and the seats are wide,...More

We went there to see a movie. There is a long sloping lobby and elegant decor. It is one big theater, not cut up into little theaters. We live nearby so we're hoping to see some concerts or comedy there soon.

I've now been to 3 different concerts at the Colonial Theatre and I have to say it is the best venue of its size to see great acts up close. I saw Gregg Allman, Grace Potter and Graham Nash (most recently) and they were all...More

The Colonial is a gem in the southwestern corner of NH. We've seen many a performance there and have never been disappointed. There's a small concession which sells snacks, drinks and on special occasions, wine is offered. There are many restaurants in the area which...More
