The Colonial Theater was built by Gilbert A. Saunders in 1925 at a cost of $10,000. It opened as a vaudeville theater and then switched to being a movie theater.
In 2001 the South Hill Civic Center purchased the theater from the Saunders family. The South Hill Civic Center then donated the theater to the present owner, the South Hill Community Development Authority.
The Colonial Theater is listed on the National Register of Historic Places and the Virginia Landmarks Register. Additional fundraising, including a major capital campaign, will begin soon. The target date for opening was set for 2007, but in early-2009, this is still ongoing.
