AWARD-WINNING NON-PROFIT INDEPENDENT ART HOUSE CINEMA AND EVENT VENUE IN DOWNTOWN CONCORD, NH

Red River Theatres is a nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization that seeks “to present film and the discussion of film as a way to entertain, broaden horizons and deepen appreciation of life for audiences of all ages.”  We offer diverse programming ranging from first-run independent films, cult favorites, and classics, to local and regional films projects, foreign films, documentaries and panel discussions. Conversation and civic engagement are at the heart of what makes Red River so central to the community and regional cultural scene.

Founded in 2007 after a 7-year community effort and extensive capital campaign, Red River Theatres is the only independent cinema of its kind in the state. Much like its namesake, Red River, the 1948 classic western starring John Wayne, the organization came about as a result of the efforts of a community that undertook an epic, nearly impossible but ultimately successful, journey of creating an art house cinema from scratch in the state capital.

Over the years, Red River Theatres has become an integral liaison and community-building entity for the greater Concord region. Located in the downtown of the state capital, surrounded by governmental agencies and numerous social and community organizations, we have the unique opportunity to strengthen and unite the community through the arts.

Dedicated to supporting our community by bolstering other local businesses and entrepreneurs, Red River features local goods for sale at our concession stand, The Indie Café. Here, guests can purchase a variety of beers, wines, sandwiches from The Works, Mitchell’s Salsa and Chips, coffee, and locally made chocolates, in addition to our great popcorn, candy, and soda offerings. Similarly, we feature local artists in our small art gallery, which each month provides the opportunity for artists to exhibit and sell their work to our many patrons, members, and donors.

In order to offer these services to the community, Red River Theatres depends on memberships, charitable contributions, grants, and rentals, in addition to ticket sales.

The Lincoln Financial Cinema seats 156 with Christie 2210 digital projection equipment, Dolby surround sound, and stadium seating.

The Jaclyn Simchik Memorial Cinema is a flexibly designed, intimate multi-purpose room, capable of seating 22 and is equipped with 4K digital projection capabilities, allowing us to not only show films, but also host workshops, special showings, receptions, and other functions.

Our 3-screen state-of-the-art theater was designed and built by Eric Palson, Chris Lozette, and Anthony Mento of Sheerr McCrystal Palson Architects Inc and is recognized as a beautiful and intimate space, unrivaled in the region for its aesthetic appeal and unique offerings. Found in the lower level of Capital Commons, our art house cinema is handicap-accessible, contains hearing loop technology, and offers closed captioning during select films each week.

For the convenience of our patrons, Capital Commons  is attached to a parking garage with an entrance on Storrs Street. The theater can be accessed directly from the garage, as well as through a street-level door along the pedestrian plaza on Main Street.
