Colonial Theater, Augusta (Official)
Previously operated by: Paramount Pictures Inc.
Architects: Harry S. Coombs
The Colonial Theater opened on September 1, 1913 and was designed by architect Harry S. Coombs, who was known for designing many local libraries. The Colonial Theater was damaged by fire in 1926, and the auditorium had to be rebuilt. In the 1940’s, it was operated by Paramount Pictures Inc. through their subsidiary John Ford. It was closed in 1968, and was in use as a storage facility for many years.
By 2010, local citizens were forming a group to regenerate the theatre.
