Lynne is right. You use the same auxilliary as in the original sentence. As she said, "Me, too" is also correct, as is "I would, too." As a reminder, think of how you would make the sentence negative.
I īd like to go to the theater.
I wouldn īt.
 
That tells you which auxilliary to use.

If the sentence were:" I wouldn īt like to go to the theater." (negative), would it be correct again to use "Me, too." as an alternative to the reply: "Nor would I.", "Neither would I.", or " I wouldn īt, either."?

No, "Me, too" is only for responding to positive statements.

Sorry Bruce, Is it then: "Me, either.", "Me, neither."?

Both sound awkward to me.

"Me, neither", so that there will be a negative in the sentence. That īs why it can īt be "Me, too", because there isn īt a negative element in it.

 
It is "I wouldn īt, either" (not "neither"), because we avoid double negatives in English.
