Opened as the Royal Theatre in the fall of 1910, presenting vaudeville and live shows. By early-1929 it became a movie theatre. Sound was installed in early-1930 and it was renamed Rio Theatre on October 26, 1932. It was re-named Colonial Theatre in May 1937.
Closed in 1979, it reopened in 1981 only to close for good in 1985. Prior to its demolition, the Art Deco-style wall fixtures from its auditorium were salvaged and restored and today are in the main auditorium of the Art Deco Lake Theatre in Oak Park, IL.
