The Latchis Theatre of Keene NH is well remembered by many residents of the town of Milford and surrounding communities, who patronized it from it’s opening in 1923 and up until it’s closing in the 1980s. Despite a lot of the fun memories, many are unaware of the theatre’s history and how it fits into the rich legacy of the Latchis Theatre chain and the legacy of the Latchis family. On August 16 at 7pm, the Historical Society of Cheshire County will host a special one of a kind live-documentary that will visually look at how the Keene Latchis Theatre fits in with the other theaters built by the Latchis family and the Latchis family’s legacy. The program makes use of photos of the various theaters and reconstructed architectural sketches to visualize what these buildings looked like. In addition, relevant history pertaining to the Latchis family, American film history and theatre History will also be included to help put the history of the Latchis Theaters into perspective. This will be the third exhibition of the program which was performed first performed at the Latchis Theatre in Brattleboro VT and then to the Milford (NH) Historical Society; it was well attended and received at these two exhibitions. The program will be hosted by film and theatre historian Jonathan A. Boschen, who assisted with the research for the book “Greek Epic” that documents the history of the Latchis family and the Brattleboro Latchis Theatre. Admission is free and complimentary popcorn and refreshments will be served.
