Opened about 1910. The Colonial was probably the first "Big" movie theatre of Western Maryland. (The Maryland was really designed more for vaudeville than movies, though it certainly ended up primarily as a film house) Now a church, the interior is much less impressive than the fantastically colorful, ornate terra-cotta that covers the exterior. The carriage lobby has some interesting 1930s book-matched panelling.
