The Colonial Theater was first known as the Fisher Opera House, which opened on January 11, 1892. Located on the east side of Fourth Avenue between B and C Streets, the Fisher Opera House was named after John C. Fisher who raised the money for the new theater to be built. In 1902 the Fisher Opera House was sold and the named changed to the Isis Theater. The Isis Theater continued with live performances just as the Fisher Opera House had done.
It didn’t become a movie theater until 1921 when the Isis Theater was renamed the Colonial Theater and silent movies were shown there. Its life as a movie theater was short as the Colonial Theater was demolished in 1928.
Today, Wells Fargo Plaza sits on the site of this former theater.
