Step over the threshold of this landmark Victorian theater – the oldest in New Hampshire - and into the Beaux Arts Founders Lobby featuring superlative patron amenities. Upstairs through the newly restored turn of the century upper lobby, is the elegant 895-seat auditorium with the original hardwood floor, horseshoe balcony and finely detailed dome – now restored to its 1878 splendor – that has welcomed artists ranging from Mark Twain to Buffalo Bill Cody’s Wild West Show.  As an “American Treasure”, you will fall in love with this non-traditional and tastefully unique event space, perfect for any type of gathering.
