The Colony Theatre was designed by architect Erle G. Stillwell. DocSouth’s “Going to the Show” section has some of Stillwell’s plans and drawings of the Colony linked from this web page.

This was a rather large streamline moderne house built around 1940. It was later joined by the Miracle Theater, which was one building down. The Colony was abandoned in the 1970s and finally torn down around 2006 after part of it collapsed during an attempted renovation for condos.
