The Concord Theatre and Concord's Love Affair with the M
Paul Brogan sees his name in lights at Gibson's Bookstore as he visits to present his history of Concord's fascination with the silver screen, in The Concord Theatre and Concord's Love Affair with the Movies. From the first flickering movie images shown in Concord, New Hampshire in 1896, film represented something very special to the citizens of the city by the Merrimack River. This story is about more than the Concord Theatre, which for 61 years occupied a special place in the community. It's a story of how the movies drove the economy and brought people together. It is a story about the independent theaters like the Concord Theatre and Cinema 93 as well as the chain theaters, the multiplexes, the drive-ins and the neighborhood theaters. Its a story of people and their courage, humor and a rich and inspiring history.
