FireCaptain commented about RKO Colonial Theatre on Nov 6, 2004 at 9:02 pm

The Colonial had large oval skylight type areas with banisters around them where theatre goers on the second floor could see others on the first. I may have been one of the last people in the Colonial. In 1965, during the demolition of the theatre, I snuck in during the dead of then night to look around. (I did the same at the Keith’s and State) I had forgotten about those oval holes and almost fell. That was one beautiful theatre. On the North wall of the church that now stands there you can see a small part of the original Colonial. It’s easy to spot as the color of the brick is completely different from the rest. There’s an alley there that makes this easy.
