This page has an old photo of the Colonial Theatre. A comment by Dave Holdren says that it was at the corner of Wheeling Avenue and 6th Street, and that it was built in 1901 and burned down in 1968. The October 10, 1901, issue of the Cambridge Jeffersonian reported on the opening of the house, and noted that the architect was Wilbur T. Mills, a former resident of Cambridge who was practicing architecture in Columbus.

Multiple photos from 1910 and up added. The Colonial was the Scottish Rite Building before the 1968 fire. Same Scottish Rite likely that is today in the former State Theatre building up the street on Wheeling Avenue.

An advertisement for the Colonial Theatre in the 1903-1904 Cahn guide says that the house opened on October 1, 1901.
