The Colonial Theater opened August 1915 with a lot of fanfare featuring celebrities Dorothy Goodman and Anna Paulin. This was the first theater built by T. Miller Davidige and his father. Together they began an era that saw their theaters patronized for over half a century.

The Colonial Theater had a successful 15 year run before closing. The Cricket Box gift shop later occupied the theater’s prior home.

Here is a recent view of the former Colonial Theatre (Spanish Colonial style bldg with tile roof). Can’t read the sign, but it’s the one with the tree.
