Just went here to see The Avengers:End game.....we sat up in the balcony seats. The theatre is cozy and comfortable. ...although I wished the seats were a little more comfy. ...but after watching a 3 hour movie, I doubt if any seat would be comfy enuff. For a historic establishment, I really love looking around at all the historic pictures and info they have hanging in the refreshment area. I had never been to a movie theater in such an historic building like that...versus all the new modern movie theaters. I look forward to visiting again....and hopefully see other artifacts I didnt see this time, while waiting for the movie to start.
Love this small theater! It is very cosy and we love the small town feel. We came up for a visit one summer and ended up buying a home nearby!
Overall, I enjoy the colonial. The theater is very original, and I love how iconic the elephant. Though I do have some issues, one being the fact that the movie is way overpriced. Ive gone to the nickelodean theater in portland, which I personally believe is better, and they have lower prices. For Portland... plus they need more movie options, but I still enjoy the colonial. Just go see a movie that you really want to see, and not something you feel eh about.
Such a nice little gem in Belfast. We go to a lot of movies in the winter. Grabbing discounted tickets at the early bird sale was worth it.
Great amazing old fashioned theatre. Amazing and friendly staff.
The Colonial Theater is a wonderful old style theater. We saw Star Wars there, I love the Dreamland section of the theater.
Old cinema with lots of character. Inexpensive relatively speaking. Great location in the heart of Belfast
It was a quaint theater and the style is really nice. This would be a good spot for young people to do a photo shoot. The sound is kind of hard to hear but I went on Sunday which had closed captioning.
Quaint, old fashioned theatre. Great prices and outstanding staff!
Awesome cute movie theater with sweet kind generous people
This movie theater is the best movie theater I have ever been to in my whole entire 11 years of being alive and for all those haters who is saying that our movie theater is not good enough will go well maybe you Go get a life because this is our movie theater and we love this movie it deserves five stars not 4 1/2
Great theatre-- places like this just dont exist anymore. Always happy to support an independent business in a wonderful small town like Belfast!
So great to enjoy a film in an old fashioned yet updated venue. Sound and picture quality were good!
The woman selling tickets felt it was her place to decide whether a movie was appropriate for my child to watch. She admitted to not having even seen the trailer much less the actual movie. She also had no knowledge of my child’s age. Completely inappropriate behavior.
Best theater around. current movies great atmosphere low prices
Loved it. Great seats. No big crowds. Indie movies.
Nice seats, not too small. Really great prices!
Cool historic movie theater with lots of personality! The owners have always provided job opportunities for local youth and treat them well!!!
This is a great small theater in Belfast. The old historical building is very cool. Movie prices are very reasonable, especially for matinees. You can get a beer at the snack stand, which is always a plus! There is no dedicated parking but it should be no problem to find a spot to park.
Decent small town movie theatre. Prices are fair and decent movie selection.
Nice, unique old theater. Fun experience.
We love the Colonial!!! A great local business, first-run movies, good popcorn, beer and wine available, Wed bargain night, free holiday matinees... SO much awesome.
Great classic family fun night at the movies ️
Small local theater with charm. The Colonial has three theaters, one with a balcony. It is reasonably priced, tickets and snacks; of note, popcorn is fresh. Movies are current.
Family friendly, old school style theater. Small town atmosphere, and awesome old screens with curtains and the whole 9 yards.
Thrilled with the movie choices, the seating comfort and view of the screen, and the cleanliness of the entire theater, including the rest rooms. Great vibe, fun crowd. Moved here from a locale with multiple theaters nearby; so happy that this small theater is able to show the latest and the coolest in real time. Great staff, too!
The Colonial Theater in Belfast Maine is an ArtDeco cinema with three spaces for movies including a theater tucked in back of the others called Dreamland. There are no bad seats and they are very comfortable too. A genuine small town gem. Only issue is restrooms are on lower floor. Still worth visiting.
Lots of character to this theater, and fun choices for snacks. Love the convenience of the location right in the center of Belfast.
It is not crowded. There is little to no wait at the box office. There are only 3 screens, but most popular movies are shown. Movies only in 1-2 weeks. Beautiful indoor decor and clean, classically styled theaters offer a great atmosphere. Screens are clean and have good picture quality.
I love this little place. I see movies here as often as I can.
Art decor facade and old fashioned feel. Friendly staff and owner often present. Bargain night Wednesday.
Nice to see how wonderfully the owner cares for his customers all year including the holiday season by giving the opportunity to provide along with local businesses free movies for children and adults alike.
Depending on the theater the seats could be more comfortable.... Nice feel to the place though!
Its a nice theater. Great service. Go early so you can sit in the center. Its kind of awkward sitting on the sides of the theater.
Quaint, clean, uncrowded, perfect! Its like stepping into a time machine with surround sound and popcorn. Love this place!
Theatre is cool. Woman owner is a crotchity ole witch. Only go on rare occasion as I hate to give her any business. Its a shame she owns it.
Fun fun place. We go all the time.
Great time at a nice Theater. We visited during the free movie time at 3pm.
Always an amazing time, so glad to see such a historic theater so well preserved and cherished by the community. Snacks are well priced and chairs comfortable!
I love this theater! Its a very characterful place conveniently located in the heart of downtown Belfast showing a range of films you wont typically find at the big-box Mall cinema. Probably the only the theater in the world with an elephant on the roof.
Went to movies to see Wonder Woman. Great movie but it was also nice because the lady that sold tickets and the 2 people at refreshments were all polite and friendly.
Awesome Art Deco theater. A little bit loud but very cool.
Great place to watch new movies. Comfortable seats and great people that work there.
Perfect theater size and sound for Belfast. A great escape
Love this old fashioned local theater. Reasonably priced and fun for all !
Fun place with reasonable prices!
I am in love with this place!!!
I like made out with a girl in here once, that was a fun time
Just fine and dandy. Friendly, happy movie theater and goers. : )
I love my home town movie theater! I love the old fashion feel of it.
Very good movie experience. Comfortable and well managed theater.
A nice experience. This is a small three room theater with friendly staff and it is very clean. Cash only? Oh no! Might have to speak to one of the staff and ask them to point you to the nearest ATM, a block away at High Street Market. Such an inconvenience indeed! I bet you could even ask them to hold the movie for a minute and wait for you, because thats what this small town, community oriented theater can do. Find yourself wandering around in the colonial for what feels like hours? Better stop using psychedelics in public, as this seems to be a family friendly theater. Usually there is one movie on the lineup for a younger audience. A great place for a rainy, snowy, muddy or otherwise quiet coastal Maine evening.
Fantastic place kids had a blast
One of the best parts about Belfast.
I really like this place cheap but still ice seating.
Tickets are not that expensive, but the food is a rip off, bathrooms are on the bottom floor, but the movies are pretty good and in for a good time incase you have other plans or something!
Its ok chairs arent that comfy and its an older theatre but the staff there are amazing.
Best place ever to see a movie!
Its like a step back in time. Very nice little theater.
What a wonderful place to see a movie. We will be back for years to come.
This iconic small town theater survives, despite the megaplexes an hours drive away. I dont know why anyone would appreciate the offense and assault of a $15 dollar movie in augusta anyway. Here, prices are good.
A lovely evening at the movies, in a theater run by people who love and respect the magic of the cinema!
This is an amazing small town theater. The movie choices are always wonderful.
Fun theater to visit. Be prepared to do steps to get to your theater. Matinee prices.
The Colonial is an experience. There are theaters that are larger and higher tech but not with the history of The Colonial. Plus when do you get to sit in the balcony in modern theaters?
Quirky old cinema. Fun flashback value and fits nicely with the town of Belfast.
Fantastic retro themed movie theater.
Funky old theater in downtown. They sell wine and beer!!
Quirky fabulous fun. The way a movie theater should be.
Great old fashion atmosphere theater. Not the most comfortable seats.
Best movie theater in Midcoast Maine!
Love this quaint old fashioned theater.
Great little 3 screen theater.
Everything is good for me and the best movies and people are nice there and good snack, drink thanks you so much.
Quintessential historic small town movie theater.
Cant say enough nice things about this theater. Mike and Terrace the owners are delightful always get the newest movies and the popcorn is awsome
Nice small quiet historic theatre with reasonable prices
Great to have a movie theater in Belfast
Iconic place, great staff.
Love this place!
Love this place.
Terrible owner, rude, grumpy and yells at small children. But the movies are usually good.
Our favorite movie theater!
Great place! Nice people!
The only theater Ive ever been in where they offered to start the feature movie over again for all the late comers on a stormy night! I ️ Belfast!
