The Colonial building comprises of three smaller buildings. The farthest to the right was the Colonial Theater which opened in 1920. The mosiac tiles still say such across the entrance. The marquee is an obvious hint but this is just the lobby. The auditorium is gone.
Another piece of this same building was where Paul Revere met with locals to plan an attack on nearby Fort William and Mary. With the stolen gunpowder and munition, the rebels fought the battles of Lexington and Concord. The third chunk which makes this structure I don’t know anything about.
In 2003, it was slated for demolition. It went up for review and the historic commission said there really isn’t anything left to save.
The new building might look like the original Colonial Theater, now hidden under a thin coat of cement.
It was demolished in May 2005.
