A brief history of the Colonial Theatre can be read on this web page, which also has a few photos of the theater. The style of the building is, not surprisingly, colonial revival, though the auditorium, shown in one of the photos, was rather plain. The web page also notes that the theater opened in the summer of 1947.

The building was later a restaurant, but it has now been closed for several years and is vacant.
