Building dates from 1924. Operated as the Colonial from 1930-1966. Change in ownership in 1966 and again in the 1970’s. Known as The Cinema V for a time.

Then renovated into a bar.

Purchased by the city in 2017 for $60,000; considerably less than the $148,000 appraisal. Many grants received and repairs and improvement made.

Performances and events subsequently held and an art gallery opened. There are plans for future renovations and upgrades into a full fledged performing arts center.

I’ve uploaded two street photos as a movie theatre.
