The Magic Theatre (since renamed the “Onyx” by its current owners) made its debut circa 1980 (by founder-manager Ross Woodbury) and bounced through several locations before settling into its current address. It was known for its comfy, informal decor and its eclectic programming, featuring many free films and family matinees, as well as the usual array of foreign films, classics and documentaries.


Raw5300 commented about Colfax Theatre on Jul 17, 2018 at 6:18 am

Sadly,the Colfax Theatre is again closed and has been since January 1, 2018. A couple from the S.F. Bay Area purchased it and beautifully renovated it, but made the mistake of primarily using it to stage avant-garde performances, which is not what the local community wanted. As of this writing (July, 2018), the building is vacant and the business is for sale.
