The Flying Monkey opens in Plymouth NH
Every small town use to have a movie theater, many have rusted and faded away. This could have easily happened to this little two screen movie house in Plymouth. It is almost inevitable when age and repairs out pace income the sad reality is the locals are forced to drive to a mega-plex miles away.The trick was to find a patron of the arts who had an idea to make the venue profitable enough to work. The owner and founder of the Common Man restaurants Alex Rey is just that kind of visionary. I worked for Alex 27 years ago while I was in College, he taught me many things that weren't in the text books. Fast forward a quarter of a century, and the single Common man restaurant has grown to about 20 statewide. Many go by other Names the Town Docks, Largo's the Tilton Dinner...but they are all part of the "Common Man Family". When I was a Struggling College student, it was working for this family that pulled me through. So Best of Luck on opening night...I'll be there to see my friends and family and will happily plunk down the ticket price for admission. I look forward to seeing an old friend James Montgomary on stage with his band and other fantastic musicians.

While growing up in Detroit, Montgomery learned first-hand from masters James Cotton, John Lee Hooker and Junior Wells at the legendary Chessmate. Over the years, he's carried on the tradition and continues to be a vital presence in blues as one of the most dynamic performers on the scene. The James Montgomery Band has toured with The Allman Brothers, Steve Miller, Bruce Springsteen, Aerosmith, BB King, Bonnie Raitt, John Lee Hooker and Dr. John James, among others, and continues to sit in with the Blues Brothers Band.
I'm looking forward to a great show, and a new venue for bands , movies and unique table side service with top quality entertainment in our small corner of the White Mountains of New Hampshire.
