The Colony Theatre, originally named the Carolina Theatre (the second Carolina Theatre in Wilson – the first was renamed Drake Theatre when this theater opened), was located at 129 South Goldsboro Street. It has since been demolished.

The site of the Colony Theatre is now a parking lot. Status should be Demolished.
