Red River Theater – Concord

Red River Theater is no ordinary cinema and as such it deserves its place in this list. It was opened in 2007 after the local community put together a seven year project to create this state-of-the-art cinema that would show art house films. The cinema has three screens and cost the local community $1.8 million dollars. The cinema does not play mainstream movies instead focuses on art house productions and local movies instead. The cinema has a huge place in the hearts of the community and is an important feature in the New Hampshire cultural scene.
