About

The Colonial Theatre

North Canaan, CT

Interior shot of art deco theatre, featuring plush red theater seating, red damask walls, and ceiling with red, gold, green, and black details.

Nestled in the heart of North Canaan, Connecticut, just minutes away from the Massachusetts border, the Colonial Theatre stands tall as a significant cultural landmark. Constructed in 1923, the theatre boasts a century-long run of playing host to a diverse array of entertainment; from movies and musical acts to plays and comedy shows. While the one-time basement bowling alley is left to the confines of history, The Colonial Theatre has remained an unforgettable hub for community gatherings and we are honored to usher it into a new chapter.

We are thrilled to invite members of the Litchfield Hills and Southern Berkshires communities to join hands with us in this endeavor. Our flexible event spaces are perfect for a wide-range of programming and we eagerly seek partnerships for various occasions, such as:

  • Live Music Performances

  • Private Movie Screenings

  • Corporate Events (Conferences, Seminars, Workshops, Meetings)

  • Comedy Shows

  • Charity Galas

  • Community Gatherings

  • Family Events (Reunions, Birthday Parties)

  • Cultural Festivals

  • Book Readings/Author Events

  • Educational Workshops

Let's keep in touch!
