The Colonial Theatre is the last of the area’s historic theaters. Opened in 1924, the Colonial was a stop on the vaudeville circuit for over twenty years. In 1945, the theater switched to a film-only schedule and continued showing films for the next forty years under the control of the Latchis Theatres chain.
In 1984, the building was purchased for $100,000 from the Latchis family. The new owners intended to just show films, but later decided to include concerts and stage shows. They installed a new orchestra section, which reduced seating capacity to 886 seats. In 1994, long-needed renovation efforts were begun.
Today, the Colonial is still open and raising money to continue these renovations, and the future looks bright.
