This theatre was built by Louis B. Mayer when he was first gaining success as a theater owner. It opened on December 11, 1911. The Colonial Theater was used for vaudeville and live shows as well as movies. Mayer sold his interest around 1918 or thereabouts. By 1941 it was operated by Paramount Pictures Inc. through their subsidiary Mullins & Pinanski.
I have no additional information on the Colonial Theatre, except to say that it is certainly demolished now; there is a parking lot next to the Fleet Bank in Washington Square where it used to stand.
