i have been to red river theater both to see films and volunteering for some of their events, one was a showing of My Fair Lady and a couple times i helped with Downton Abbey premiers.

They show a lot films and that don't show in normal theaters wether because they are too artsy for mainstream theaters or becuase they are documentaries. it greatly adds to the culture of Concord and brings us films that we would otherwise need to travel to a big city to see.

They have the best movies and the S.N.O.B. Film Festival! Wonderful staff ! I can see and hear from any seat , plus get a glass of wine as I watch! I couldn't ask for more than that but there is one more thing . I can park in the parking garage and go right to the theater so even the weather can't keep me away.

Whenever I have someone visiting Concord I always point them towards Red River Theatres because they constantly have great films rotating through. So as a member of the public and as a Concord resident I'm thrilled with everything that Red River contributes to the arts scene here.

Additionally, I work at a nonprofit in Concord and have collaborated with Red River several times. Their staff is incredibly dedicated, knowledgeable, and friendly. So I would definitely recommend Red River Theatres to other nonprofits looking to rent out a theater space or looking to advertise.

This theater has been a major contributor to the wonderful transformation of our downtown. They are a destination for fabulous films and fun events. The theater is lovely and inviting and kept super clean and tidy. The opportunity to get a beer or glass of wine and enjoy it while watching the show is very pleasant. They are a high class, high quality establishment. Red River is fantastic!

We had a screening of our film, Shadows Fall North, at Red River Theatres and it was fantastic! The staff were extremely helpful and really nice to work with. The theatre was comfortable, the film looked great and our discussion afterwards was inspiring.

Red River took the time to get to know us and helped get the word out about our film. It was all about the content of our film (Black history) and ensuring we had a full house.

We couldn't have asked for a better venue and a better group of people. A much needed organization for the area. Thank you Red River! We'll be back!

Red River has so many different ways to entertain or challenge you! My wife who was handicapped, loved to go for a dinner at our favorite Mexican Restaurant close by and then we were able to park in the parking garage and walk right into the theater without going outside into the New Hampshire winter weather.
I have been to many events that speak to the needs of our community, country and world that are not offered anywhere else near us or are exclusive to groups here in Concord. I had the incredible experience of moderating a discussion with two Vietnam Veteran advocates after we watched the documentary "Stray Dog",
I don't know of a place anywhere that has the depth of program offerings that speak to so many different people in our society.
Red River is truly a yet to be discovered gem for many that will eventually become lifetime fans and supporters of this great venue in Concord.

I'm a huge fan of Red River Theatres, both as a film lover and filmmaker. The people of Red River are true lovers of film. It shows with the variety of quality films they select and the deep care and appreciation they show to their audiences. As a filmmaker I have screened two films at Red River and they could not have been more supportive with helping to promote the film, and becoming advocates for my films while at Red River and beyond.

A great place to see independent and cult movies that are not shown anywhere else in the area. The seats in the 2 main theatres are really comfortable. You can drink wine and beer at your seats, and enjoy sandwiches and snacks from local merchants. We especially enjoy the special events like the sing-alongs and the quote-alongs. The theatre has become a part of the downtown revival, and sponsors many community events.

Red River in the heart of downtown Concord is a gem! This independent theater is the place to go if you are looking for movies that are a little different. They also host special events like discussions with movie makers, costume balls, and panel discussions about tough topics. Over the years, I have watched excellent indies there, heard fascinating talks, and have even participated in a panel or two. Red River is a great boon to the arts scene in New Hampshire!

Red River has shown so many classics I would never have gotten around to seeing, but it has also introduced me to excellent modern films a cut above the predictable blockbusters that have become some of my favorites. Movies that remember that film is art.

Really that is what red river is. Not a movie theater pumping out mindless entertainment, but a gallery showing true artists moving work.
