Colonial Theater suffers damage
BLUEFIELD, WV — On Friday February 27, 2009, the Colonial Theater was severely damaged due to the collapse of the Matz-Milner Hotel which was adjacent to the theater.
If the theater can be repaired is unknown at this time. The main concern is of course people’s safety in the area. Lots of traffic has been detoured around the area.
When the Hotel collapsed it took a big chunk of the theatre with it. It is a sad day to see such a beautiful structure destroyed.
