Description

Overview

Considered the cultural center of town, the Colonial Theatre opened its doors in 1903.

While back then it hosted live shows and vaudeville (including an appearance by Harry Houdini), today the one-of-a-kind 658-seat auditorium presents art and independent films, classic and modern pictures and live children’s shows and concerts.

Film buffs will recognize the marquee from the 1958 hit The Blob, and every year, the town hosts its annual Blobfest, a three-day celebration of the flick. The theater also stays true to its horror history by hosting First Friday Fright Night — screenings of classic scary movies — at 9:45 p.m.
