First time and we will be back! Professional staff. No waiting outside. Kept lines moving to get in. Place must have been recently renovated. Nicely painted. Beautiful inside. Carpet and chairs were clean. Good place to see a show.

This theater is very “mom and pop” but prettier. It’s a well-funded, cultural hub in a small town, and it rarely brings a huge crowd for any film. Whoever selects which films to show always orders the best films, ones up for the most Oscar...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.

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.
