The Colonial Theatre was built by Gilbert A. Saunders in 1925 at a cost of $10,000. It opened as a vaudeville theatre and then switched to being a movie theatre.
In 2001 the South Hill Civic Center purchased the theatre from the Saunders family. The South Hill Civic Center then donated the theatre to the present owner, the South Hill Community Development Authority.
The Colonial Theatre is listed on the National Register of Historic Places and the Virginia Landmarks Register. Additional fundraising, including a major capital campaign began in the mid-2000’s. It reopened as the Colonial Center in 2013..
