News About This Theater
The Colonial Theater was a very old theater which first opened March 15, 1916. It was designed by architect E.L. Shufflebarger. It was remodeled in 1939 in the Art Deco style by Alcox & Stritzel of the architectural firm F & Y Building Service, reopening on June 30, 1940. It served as both a full theater and a movie house until closing in 1979.
Unfortunately, it suffered damage on February 27, 2009, when sections of the adjacent Matz-Milner Hotel collapsed onto the theater’s facade and lobby, taking down its marquee.
