Colonial Theatre

Viewing: Photo | Street View

Old theater built around 1900 on the Boardwalk. Faunce’s Theatre appeared on the Boardwalk in the very early-1900’s.

Old pictures show the theatre with a large, arched entrance, between E. 9th Street and E. 10th Street. The theatre later changed it’s name to the Plaza Theatre, and eventually the Colonial Theatre just before the fire of 1927 that destroyed the building and most of the Boardwalk.

From what I have read about this theater, it was located between 9th and 10th streets and opened as Faunces Theater, was renamed Colonial Theater and finally the Plaza Theater. This is a 1922 photo of Faunces Theater showing the movie “Kissed” which Imdb dates at 1922.
