The Colonial Theatre opened in 1910 and was equipped with a 3 manual, 14 ranks Moller theatre organ. It was remodeled and enlarged in 1927 to the plans of architect John Eberson, reopening on October 7, 1927. A 3 manual 12 ranks Page unit organ was installed.
This is the neighborhood theatre I attended as a child growing up in the 1960’s and 1970’s. Among other movies, I saw “Bonnie and Clyde” here in 1968.
The theatre was closed in 1989 and has since been torn down.
