MEREDITH — The Meredith Public Library will host a presentation on the history of movie theaters in the Granite State on Tuesday, July 29, at 6:30 p.m.
The program by Jeffrey Klenotic, an associate professor of communication arts at the University of New Hampshire, will explore when movies first came to New Hampshire and where they played, who presented them, who went to see them, and where the first movie theaters in the state were built.
The program, titled "A Theater Near You," is the product of Klenotic's ongoing research, which aims to produce a digital archive and interactive map charting every venue where movies played in the Granite State from the medium's origins in 1896 to the rise of television in the 1940s.
Those attending will be welcome to share their own knowledge of local movie venues and their own memories of "going to the movies."
Klenotic's talk is sponsored by the UNH Speakers' Bureau and the Friends of the Meredith Library.
