The Colonial Theater in Beach Haven
The Colonial Theater served Beach Haven from the 1920’s to around 2000.
For a while, the Saint Francis Catholic Church would hold Sunday Masses there as it was air conditioned and had more seating than the original church. The theater was one of three on the the island. The Colony Theater in Brant Beach is long gone. There was another next to the Acme Grocery Store. The nearest movie theater is the Regal Cinema in Manahawkin near the Garden State Parkway.
The Photo is from about 2004. It ceased being a theater around 2000. For a while it was an upscale building supply store, Tuckerton Lumber. As of 2018, it is the home of Artifacts & Company.
