A rare mention of the Colonial in the trade journals appeared in the February 18, 1953 issue of The Exhibitor: “The Colonial, Iron Mountain, Mich., Thomas Circuit, reopened.”

Brauns and Martin Dawe Thomas began an association in the early 20s. The Braunmart Theatre in Iron Mountain is a combination of their names. Thomas had been a manager for Fox and formed the Thomas Theatre Group in 1922. The Group purchased or operated more than a dozen theatres in Michigan. The Colonial is listed as part of that group. Was Brauns a silent partner?

In 1935 the Colonial and the Braunmart were modernized. The organ from the Colonial was sold to a Catholic church.

The Martin Group also included the Capitol Theatre in Iron Mountain which is, as of this date, not on Cinema Treasures.
