We just love going to this theater. Especially love partaking of the wine & beer selections from concessions while enjoying films. These folks are so generous to Belfast hosting many local fundraising events. We go every week! 5 stars for the Colonial!

Great theater. Love it here. I've been coming since I was a kid. Awesome prices. Art Deco feel. Wish they brought back the sodas that aren't in a can. Friendly people. A must do in Belfast!
