The other theater that You are speaking of is the Granada which closed about the same time as the Colonial. However it was re-opened as Bo’s of Bluefield. It has never done well since it was reopened as a night club. And has recently been sold again to reopen as another night club. I will be posting what people can do to contribut to the opening of the Colonial in the next week. So keep your eyes peeled.

Greetings Billy. Thankyou for your interest in efforts to restore and open the Colonial Theater. I can be contacted at the following number 304-960-1489 or you can e-mail me at Currently I have been in touch with the 2 sign companies in the area about restoring the current theater sign. And Mr Tibbs, the current owner has expressed a desire to assist with it’s restoration as well. I have been attempting to contact the National Register for Historic Places regarding getting grants for restoration. So far there has been no responce from either place. Just thought I would keep you updated with things thus far.

My dear friends. It is my desire to purchase the Colonial Theater in Bluefield and get it reopened. I would hope that the people in the Bluefield area will take advantage of this Grand Historic Building that Graces the downtown area. We are currently appealing to local business as well as individuals to assist in its restoration. We did it once with the Greater Bluefield Community Center, let’s do it again.
