Situated in Corona in NW Queens, the Colonial was an early cinema that did not survive into the sound era. The Colonial first turns up in advertising in 1919 as a new addition to Sheer’s Theatres, but it might have been operating independently before that. Sheer’s also ran the Hyperion and Palace in Corona, and the Victoria in Elmhurst.
Like the Palace, the Colonial was on the south side of Northern Boulevard, and only a few blocks east of it. The proximity might have been a reason for the Colonial’s closure, since the Palace seems to have been larger and posher.
More information about the Colonial’s history and the current status of the site is needed.
