This is one of the few theaters that you can catch independent films at. Don't wait too long for a film as you never know how long it will be there. I have missed several by not going right away. Nothing fancy but very comfortable and clean.

This is not a normal theater in the sense that they show Top 10 films. They show cult/indie movies mostly, and frequently have theme weeks. This is the only theater where you can find Gift, Harold and Maude, The Shining, etc on the big screen. Plus they serve food and beer too!!

From the same people who brought you the rialto....we present the colony. The colony will show the movies, that no one else dares to. If it has a political undertone, or has teed off some large portion of america...then you can see it here, and only here. The colony does what every other theater only wishes they could...

The colony is also pretty old, so don't come looking for a delux sound system or fancy seating...you can have a drink, and enjoy a great film.

My favorite Indy movie theatre is the Rialto, but the Colony is a close second. They usually show movies that you cannot see anywhere else. The seats are comfortable, the staff is friendly and you can enjoy an adult beverage while you watch your film. The area is kind of sketchy, so don't hang around outside the theatre after the movie is over.

I enjoy the art house type theaters without the stadium seats and ten theaters. No teenagers lumbering outside yelling and chattering incessantly on their cellphones. This is art house and independent film viewing.

This place was great when I moved to Raleigh years ago. It has since been on a steady decline. Saturday night I noticed cob webs on the lights. Not just little cob webs, but huge cob webs. It looks like they have decorated for Halloween!

Colony Theaters, sister cinema to Rialto Theater, is just as fine a place to see a film. With two screens, they have a similar focus (independent, foreign, documentary) and twice as many screens to get the job done. The snack bar has
