The Colony Theatre, located on High Street, in Portsmouth’s Old Towne, was across the street from the Commodore Theatre. It was designed in Art Moderne style. After it closed, it housed a nightclub from the late-1980’s into the early-1990’s.
The former theatre was damaged by a storm in 2000 which destroyed its marquee and facade, but the exterior was afterward repaired (although not restored). Any further information on the Colony, including its current status, would be appreciated.
