While doing some research for my fave local theater, The Colonial Theatre in Phoenixville PA I came across a cool website called Another Old Movie Blog sharing the news that The Colonial Theatre in Canaan CT is for sale. If you’ve ever wanted your very own movie house, here’s your chance!

Blog owner Jacqueline T Lynch writes:

Built in 1923, this old movie house is on the National Register of Historic Places. Weathering the decades and changes in film, and audience, the Colonial was closed in 1997, but later re-opened to include live theatre as well as movies.

Have a look here at this website more photos, including the nifty interior, and at this website for more history on this theater. Hopefully somebody will see possibilities for the future while respecting its past.

Thanks Jacqueline for bringing this to our attention – perhaps there’s someone out there who wants to own a little theatre in this cute little corner of Connecticut.
