This is the most uncomfortable theater I've ever been in. I attempted to see Lewis Black on September 22 2018. We had balcony seats. Let me tell you, this place was not designed for average sized humans let alone larger or taller ones. People in...More

To those outside of Keene, know that the Colonial Theater is an old theater that has been restored. Movies on the large screen, not the small cinoplex size. Live entertainment of nationally known musicians and performers. Always a comfortable setting for whatever the evening.

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 would guess it depends on who you see. We saw Blue Oyster Cult and a couple of the performers did autographs right after the show. Better to come prepared to get autographs.
