The Colonial Theatre in Belfast, Maine opened on the same day in April 1912 that the Titanic set sail and we have not sunk yet in spite of a few ice bergs named "television", "cable tv", "good cars", "better roads", and "vcr" to name a few of the hulking behemoths. We burned flat in 1923 and reopened only a few months later in our present reincarnation in January of 1924.

Our theatre, the Roxy, was first built as the Lyric during the 2nd half of 1920 to replace the old Lyric across the street. It had 1000 seats (or so they say) at the original opening. It was redone in the art deco style in 1933 and renamed the Roxy at that time. It featured movies and vaudeville up until the spring of 1934, and has continued to present both motion pictures and stage attractions up to the present time. So we are 79 as a theatre, but 67 as the Roxy.
