Extraordinary Cinema Experience

The Flying Monkey is proud to feature all types of cinema presentations. Our goal is to present films as a way to entertain New Hampshire audiences of all ages, not only by presenting many classic flicks that should be seen on the big screen, but also by exposing audiences to a variety of genres and topics.  Over the last few years we have developed a diverse program of independent films, documentaries, classics, children and family movies, silent films, and local film projects.

Each month we host a classic silent film series, digitally re-mastered films with guest accompanist Jeff Rapsis bringing the film to life with live music, we suspect just as it was when The Plymouth Theatre was originally built. Whether it’s the first time or the 50th, there is nothing quite like seeing a movie on the big screen.

We feature a state-of-the art audio system and digital projection equipment and inclined theatre seating. Our concession stand offers beer, wine, coffee and snacks in addition to our great popcorn and soda offerings.
