Built in 1947, demolished in 1971. General Cinema briefly ran the Colony in the mid 1960s (among many changes in ownership). By the time of its closing, R and X rated fare dominated the schedule, to community concern and objections: http://www2.palmbeachpost.com/archives/google_archive/search.php?searchTerms=Colony+Theatre+1970+Palm+Beach&submit.x=0&submit.y=0

In my life time, I have seen : Palm Beach; The Paramount (Movie Palace!), The Park and The Colony—– all demolished. In West Palm Beach, The Carefree, destroyed by Hurricane Wilma, The Kettler/Palms-razed, The Surf— razed, The Coral—razed, The Arcade—remodeled into offices, and The Florida—now a legit theatre, with no screen or projector. There were others, like The Bijou which were torn down before I was born. Saddly, there are no theatres in Palm Beach or in Downtown West Palm Beach, except the one mentioned above, at City Place. No more big screens though. Most importantly, all of our “Palaces” have been torn down. PROTECT YOURS if you have one.
