The original name was “Colquitt” and later changed to “Hunter” owned by E. J. Hunter. Seating capacity was 300. I toured the building severa years ago and found that a new metal roof had been placed on the building. All of the abestos material had been removed from the walls and booth. I understand that the facade has been rebuilt with a marquee on it.

The Colquitt Theatre is on North 1st Street. You can’t get a direct view of the theater on Street View since the car didn’t drive down that block, but you can see it from certain angles on other streets.

My pictures show that the theater has undergone some restorations, as the marquee is not present in the Street View images.

Here are my pictures from January 2011.

According to the Chamber of Commerce (Oct 2007) it is the Colquitt Theatre. There is a plaque on the building that says it is the Hunter Building, but not theatre. They, of course, could be wrong. The theatre was recently gutted in preparation for a facade restoration.
