  1. I used to go to the Palace Theater Youth Camp when I was younger. I used to think a man reading a newspaper sat in the balcony on the right section (when you are looking up from the stage). I added a picture. I went to the Palace Theater for a few years and we used to eat on the stage for lunch. The “man” never left that spot it seemed. Reading a newspaper more times then not. I’m sure this thing I believe I saw was not due to lights in my eyes (playing tricks).

  2. Knowing the previous history including the Ghost Hunters episode…..I was very pleased to take my wife there to see Grease yesterday. To say I was hyper vigilant would be an understatement. We had an excellent time, but alas nothing paranormal was observed, unfortunately. Just a very nice old

  3. Its totally haunted went there alone at night and I sat in the theatre all by myself it was completely empty when I felt something or someone tap me on my head and shoulder…. ONCE I FELT THAT YUP THAT WAS MY CUE TO LEAVE!!!!!!!!

  4. Ghost Hunters isn’t the only team to investigate this location. My team and I ( a local New Hampshire team) are working with the management staff to set up a time and date for a lock down. Will post an update here once more information is available.

  5. My mom used to work there and she has some stories about the place, and some photos, I’ll have to ask her if she knows where they are. One photo is of one of the boxes and you can see a man sitting in the box. Her coworker was alone and took the photo, but that co-worker was also unreliable, so who knows. Another photo is of an orb in the audience. There was a young girl who was part of the youth theatre there and she, unfortunately, lost her battle with cancer a few years ago. They dedicated a seat to her in the audience and the orb in the photo is above that seat.
