| Street View

Built by Jacob Rosenfeld, a former projectionist, in 1948. The theatre was run by Jacob and his wife Mildred until 1958, when it closed. It was demolished shortly thereafter.

Oddly, not listed in the 1951 or 1956 Film Daily Yearbooks.

Any additional information on this theatre would be greatly appreciated.

This theatre is now an empty lot located on Main St(CR 553)next to Newcombs Market on the south side. There are still tell-tale signs on the side walk of where the entrance was. I have recently retired as a rural letter carier in Port Norris, and some of the old timers can remember The Colonial. Froggy Dagastine told me that he worked as a relief projectionist for a guy named “Jake” back in the fifties. He said that Jake also had a theatre in nearby Woodbine. Froggy told me that another theatre existed in Port Norris at an earlier time called the Love Joy.
