Also, the permanent seating was removed in the 1960s and the floor leveled by constructing wooden platforms over the original floor.

The buidling facade is somewhat in a colonial style as is the boxoffice and lobby area. The shell of the auditorium is made of cinder block. Oddly enough, the interior decor and color scheme is clearly art deco.

The Colonial Playhouse has been open for the past 25 years as the Off Broad Street Theater. It operates as a dessert theater featuring live theater such as musicals, plays, and children’s shows.

It is located at 5 South Greenwood Avenue in downtown Hopewell next to the post office and across from the borough hall.

Status should be changed to open.

The motion picture equipment was removed in the 1960s.
