A nice local theater that shows mainly main stream hollywood movies, however does squeeze in a foreign or independent film now and then.
Check out the offical website and the story on the elephants.

Looks like a beautiful theatre, both inside and out. Hope to be able to drive north sometime (in good weather, of course). Would you show older classic films such as West Side Story, and other great classics in this theatre? Just curious.

There is a great story about the current owners “discovering” a third, earlier screen during renovations, complete with ancient fire curtain, down underneath and behind the primary street-level original screen (which was split into two). Would have to get the real story from the owners but this screen was supposedly lost and forgotten since the ‘50s’.

Saw ‘The Amazing Spider-Man’ on the “Dreamland” screen. This is the original front of the house theater. This theater also has a balcony. DLP conversion was completed for the opening of ‘Brave’. All 3 screen are now digital but no 3D.

Uploaded the enhanced street view image of the theatre. What’s with the elephant on the left?

The Theatre Historical Society on-line archive has the MGM Theatre Report for the Colonial; it’s Card # 342. But no one filled out the form so there is no info, only an undated exterior photo.
